Miranda Lambert Brings Her New ‘Vice’ to ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ [Watch]
Miranda Lambert brought her new single, "Vice," to the late night stage during the Jimmy Kimmel Live! broadcast on Wednesday night (Aug. 3).
The reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year allows herself to be completely vulnerable in the opening of this performance by entertaining the fans using just her voice for the first 25 seconds, resulting in an almost guarantee of goosebumps for every viewer.
"Sting of the needle dropping on a vinyl / Neon singer with a jukebox title full of heartbreak / 33, 45, 78 / When it hurts this good you gotta play it twice / Another vice," Lambert sings.
The 32-year-old looks as comfortable as ever on the stage, offering a simple, but elegant rendition of her most recent track. Clad in head-to-toe black holding on to her acoustic guitar, Lambert looks stunning under the stage lights.
She hits every note without flaw, seamlessly and smoothly transitioning from one lyric to the next. Lambert has admitted how personal this song is, and it's obvious by the raw emotion she portrays while performing it.
“I wrote this at the exact time of the sh– hitting the fan, I think it’s great, though. It’s documented on paper with emotion," Lambert tells the Tennessean. “Everybody has a vice they run to when they need comfort, and I think that’s what this song says. There’s no mystery here. I run to things for comfort just like everybody else.”
"Vice" is the first single of her highly anticipated forthcoming album that has yet to be revealed. Lambert has given hints that the project will be personal, but still contain the sassy vocalist we all know and love. The only difference on this project will be the story that comes with it.
“My platform has always been, ‘Be honest, say what you want to say.’ That’s no different on this record.”
