First, Lambert is a co-writer on all but four of the tracks. She’s got one solo write with “We Should Be Friends” and two songs are covers. So, really, of the 24 songs, 22 are new and she’s a co-write on all but two. That’s insane.
Second, a lot of her old friends are back– Natalie Hemby (“Automatic,” “White Liar,” and “Pontoon”) has 10 tracks on the album, Ashley Monroe has two cuts and former Taylor Swift collaborator makes her first appearance on two co-writes with Lambert.
Finally, yes, Anderson East, Lambert’s boyfriend, has two co-writes on the album. And yes, there are a couple of songs about him too.
The Weight Of These Wings, which releases November 18, is available for pre-order starting this Friday, October 21, and as previously announced will be a double album.
Frank Liddell, Glenn Worf, and Eric Masse share the producing duties on The Weight Of These Wings.
