“Being in Texas with Jon Randall, recording where I cut my teeth as a young artists, felt like coming home,” Lambert said. “I thought about the women—and men—who’ve lived, loved, and found power in my music, and I wanted to get back to the root of those spaces,” she added. “Signing with Republic has inspired me to find the sweet spot for me and all the people like me.

Lambert shared a little about her upcoming single in the press release. The song, she said, “Is a tale of a woman taking her power back. I think we can all identify with the character in this song, because we have all had a time in our life we needed to find a wy to find out strength and also get a little revenge on someone that did us wrong,” she shared. “This son feels like it could be on the same record as ‘Gunpowder & Lead.’ It has that same fury.”
