This one is FUN.
Miranda Lambert released the third song from her forthcoming eighth solo studio album, Palomino, that’s set to drop at the end of this month on April 29th.
Called “Actin’ Up”, she previously played it at C2C fest last month, but I actually love the studio version just as much as when she played it live.
Written by Miranda along with her album’s co-producers, Luke Dick and Jon Randall, it features some playful lyrics and the solid songwriting we’re used to from them:
“Even Tiger Woods
Couldn’t Swing It This Good
I’m Acting Up
My McQueen Mustang
Hundred Dollars In The Tank
I’m Out In The Mojave
Call Me Ricky, Call Me Bobby
Call Me Hotter Than Wasabi
‘Cause I’m Acting Up…”
She previously released “If I Was A Cowboy” and “Strange,” but I think this is my favorite song from the new album that she’s put out so far:
1. Actin’ Up (Miranda Lambert, Luke Dick, Jon Randall)
2. Scenes (Miranda Lambert, Luke Dick, Natalie Hemby)
3. In His Arms (Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram, Jon Randall)
4. Geraldene (Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram, Jon Randall)
5. Tourist (Miranda Lambert, Luke Dick, Natalie Hemby)
6. Music City Queen feat. The B-52’s (Miranda Lambert, Luke Dick, Natalie Hemby)
7. Strange (Miranda Lambert, Luke Dick, Natalie Hemby)
8. Wandering Spirit (Mick Jagger, James Rippeto)
9. I’ll Be Lovin’ You (Miranda Lambert, Luke Dick, Jon Randall)
10. That’s What Makes the Jukebox Play (Miranda Lambert, Luke Dick, Natalie Hemby)
11. Country Money (Miranda Lambert, Aaron Raitiere, Mikey Reaves)
12. If I Was a Cowboy (Miranda Lambert, Jesse Frasure)
13. Waxahachie (Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram, Jon Randall)
14. Pursuit of Happiness (Miranda Lambert, Luke Dick, Natalie Hemby)
15. Carousel (Miranda Lambert, Luke Dick, Natalie Hemby)
