Miranda Lambert just released a new, raw version of her award-winning hit song “Tin Man” as part of The Marfa Tapes with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall. 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.
Last week, the singer-songwriters released the first track off the record, a song called “In His Arms”. Now, the trio is sharing the new version of the fan-favorite and award-winning Lambert song, “Tin Man”, which the trio penned together.
Staying true with the style of the record, the new version of “Tin Man” is broken down, raw, acoustic, and mesmerizing. Lambert sings about heartbreak in a brand new way, allowing her vulnerability to come across with every lyric. Back in 2016, when the original song was released, we thought the songstress’ pain came shining through, but this version is the real deal. The acoustic performance of “Tin Man” puts Lambert’s vocal talent on a pedestal, and takes the listener back in time with her.
“Hey there, Mr. Tin Man // You don’t know how lucky you are // I’ve been on the road that you’re on // It didn’t get me very far // You ain’t missing nothing // ‘Cause love is so damn hard // Take it from me, darling // You don’t want a heart”
At the end of the song, fans also get to hear the threesome in the studio, chatting about how they felt that cut went. It’s clear that Lambert, Ingram, and Randall are in the zone when they come together to create music. If “Tin Man” and “In His Arms” is any hint at what THE MARFA TAPES as a whole will sound like, then us country fans are in for a real treat.
