Miranda Lambert along with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall surprised fans today, April 28th with the release of their new song, “Geraldene” ahead of The Marfa Tapes, due out May 7th. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
County music superstar Miranda Lambert has joined forces with fellow musicians, Jack Ingram and Jon Randall on a brand new record entitled The Marfa Tapes, slated to come out on May 7th. The record is a culmination of intimate songs that the threesome wrote and recorded together in the tiny town of Marfa, Texas. This week, the singer-songwriters released a new song entitled “Geraldene.”
Continuing to make music that is good for the soul, Lambert, Ingram, and Randall add “Geraldene” to their early releases. With Lambert taking the lead on this track, the songstress pours her heart out in the song that respectfully mimics Dolly Parton’s hit song “Jolene.” The singer’s vocals soar on the song, as she clearly lets her emotions take center stage. Just as noticeable, the acoustic guitar feels almost palpable in the stunning song.
“Geraldene, Geraldene // Why ya gotta make me mean // Don’t make me cause a scene now Geraldene // Geraldene, Geraldene”
What makes this project as a whole and this song specifically so much fun is that the trio showcases every part of themselves on this record. Fans can hear Lambert’s voice crack a little about 2 minutes into the song, but instead of redoing the recording, the singers laugh it off. In the end, you can even hear the men telling Lambert to “Take a bow Geraldene.” We agree and are looking forward to the full release of this unique project on May 7th!
