“Strange” was written by Lambert, Luke Dick, and Natalie Hemby. With the song, Lambert sings of how people cope with the strangeness of the world.
“Have a smoke, buy a round/ Get on a jetliner goin’ anywhere bound/ Pick a string, sing the blues/ Dance a hole in your shoes/ Do anything to keep you sane,” she sings in the song’s chorus.
The singer is putting on a Las Vegas residency
Lambert’s Velvet Rodeo residency is being held at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood. The residency began on Sept. 23 and will have shows through Dec. 11. Velvet Rodeo will start back up again in 2023 with more concerts in March and April 2023.
Before the residency began, Lambert gave fans an idea of what to expect from Velvet Rodeo on her YouTube channel.
“The idea that we could take it up a few notches for production is exciting to me and scary, because I usually just keep it pretty much about the music,” Lambert said in a video. “You know, I’m from Texas so bigger hair and more sequins, don’t threaten me with a good time. This will definitely be a one-of-a-kind Miranda Lambert experience.”
