Miranda Lambert’s latest new song, “Actin’ Up,” is out now, April 8th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new song below.
Miranda Lambert and her fans have had a lot to be excited about recently. In the past month, the singer-songwriter from Texas picked up her first Entertainer of the Year award at the ACMs, announced her upcoming project Palomino, and her ‘Velvet Rodeo’ residency at the Zappos Theater in Las Vegas. Today (April 8), she debuted a brand-new track off Palomino, “Actin’ Up.”
Written with Luke Dick and her good friend and collaborator, Jon Randall, Lambert describes her lifestyle in this sassy and self-confident southern rock anthem. Although this behavior might cause one to think she’s “acting up” or out of character, she explains her true passions and dreams. Lambert references several pop-culture icons including Elvis Presley, Tiger Woods, Billy Idol, and Will Ferrell’s movie character, Ricky Bobby from Talladega Nights. Sonically, this song has a nice rhythm and flow to it, and mixed with the fun and clever wordplay, it is a very catchy tune.
“I want a sunset ride // A velvet rodeo // A Colorado high // A California glow // I want to see the desert // From a painted palomino // Senorita need to have a little fun // I’m actin’ up”
“Actin’ Up” is the third song released on Palomina so far; “Strange” came out on March 15 and her radio single, “If I Was A Cowboy,” currently sits at number seventeen on the charts. Her collaboration with Elle King, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” is in the number three spot.
Lambert will be on the road this summer with Little Big Town on their Bandwagon Tour starting in May. The tour hits the Tri-State Area June 9-11 at Jones Beach Theater, PNC Bank Arts Center, and BB&T Pavilion, respectively. Her Las Vegas residency begins in September and will run for 24-shows until April 29, 2023. For tickets, head to her website.
