First Impressions: Miranda Lambert, 'Dead Flowers'

Posted 2:29pm on Thursday, May. 14, 2009

More Like Her, from Miranda Lambert's 2007 sophomore smash Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, just rips my heart out every time I hear it. I mention Her because it seems to have paved the way for Lambert's latest single Dead Flowers, an exquisitely rendered portrait of a shattered relationship just released to country radio a couple weeks back. Lambert told Billboard her next album is due in September and may feature her trying on some new sounds, in an effort to embrace her "left-of-centeredness." If this terrific track is what we can expect, bring it on.
