On the eve of her highly-anticipated new album’s release, Miranda Lambert delivered an impassioned version of the top 10 hit “Vice” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Written by Lambert with Josh Osborne and Shane McAnally, “Vice” is the leadoff single from The Weight of These Wings, which is officially out today.
“If you need me, I’ll be where my reputation don’t precede me,” Lambert sings, following the song’s a capella introduction. The live performance strays slightly from her recording, most notably with the newly added backup vocals from Gwen Sebastian during the song’s outro.
“Vice” was the first song Lambert released following her high-profile divorce from Blake Shelton in 2015.
“I’m nervous as hell,” Lambert told Billboardback in August. “Now that I’m coming with a song, it does make me nervous, and I hope that people are respectful of it and understand what I’ve been doing. But I’ve never hidden anything or tried to be too mysterious. I’m pretty straightforward in my music. I always have been, and that hasn’t changed. . .I feel like the right thing to do was just come out with something really honest.”
Lambert recently announced her headlining Highway Vagabond tour, which kicks off January 26th in Evansville, Indiana.
