Miranda Lambert will release “Keeper of the Flame,” Lambert’s fourth radio single off her critically acclaimed, Platinum-certified, double album “The Weight Of These Wings”, on April 16th to country radio.
Upon its release in late 2016, “The Weight of These Wings” was accompanied by a deluxe, hardbound book, containing exclusive images and details about the album’s creative and recording process of which only a few hundred copies were printed. Now, those images and words have been combined with official videos and previously unheard audio interviews from Lambert.
Lambert wrote “Keeper of the Flame” along with Natalie Hemby and Liz Rose, and prior to the release of her sixth studio album, “The Weight Of These Wings”, Lambert named her 2016 tour the “Keeper Of The Flame” Tour.
She launched her a one-of-a-kind, interactive Virtual Book for “The Weight Of These Wings”, where fans can visit The Weight Of These Wings.com, connect to their own Spotify accounts with a single click, and stream all of “The Weight Of These Wings” double album 24 songs, which were originally spread across two CDs (and six sides of vinyl), thematically dubbed ‘The Nerve’ and ‘The Heart.’
