In July, Miranda Lambert released the lead single, “Vice,” from her upcoming sixth studio album, which is tentatively set to drop later this year. Written by Miranda, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, “Vice” is Miranda’s first single since “Smokin’ and Drinkin'” in June 2015, and it is currently No. 17 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.
Today (Sept. 7), the Texas songbird released a new music video for “Vice,” and it’s full of metaphors that could be interpreted to represent her life after her recent divorce from Blake Shelton.
Here’s a quick play-by-play: Filmed in her home state in the small town of Smithville, the video opens with Miranda crawling out of a wrecked car. She walks through the small town, seemingly putting the wreckage behind her. Miranda visits a local bar and trades some bling for a shot and a smoke before leaving the town. She walks past a cemetery and comes to a crossroads. Miranda gets into the backseat of a driverless car that navigates without human input, and it appears Miranda is along for the ride.
Yup, is metaphorical all day.
Check out the new video below.
