Miranda Lambert Gets Muddy in ‘It All Comes Out in the Wash’ Music Video [WATCH]
Miranda Lambert gets dirty in her new "It All Comes Out in the Wash" music video. The country star went straight to a mud pit for the clip, which debuted on Thursday (Aug. 29) afternoon.
Scenes of Lambert making a mess with a Jeep and some friends in that mud pit are interspersed with shots of the country star and her band performing "It All Comes Out in the Wash." They're doing so inside a car wash, which makes for a number of unique, colorful moments. Trey Fanjoy directed the clip, which was filmed near Nashville.
From an ill-advised drunk dial to spilling steak sauce on your mother-in-law's best tablecloth, Lambert's motto in in her latest single is "That's why the good Lord made bleach." A co-write with the Love Junkies, the songwriter trio of Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose, "It All Comes Out in the Wash" was a title that Lambert had stored away "for a while," she says. It's something all four women remember their mothers telling them.
"We like to talk about girly things and things going on in life when we write together," Lambert explains, "so I feel like the song is just kind of a mix of scenarios that all of us have either been a part of or seen, or, you know, something that’s happened in all of our lives, and realizing that, when you have something in your life that’s a little unclean at times, or hurtful, or a moment that you wish would pass, it does all pass, and it all comes out in the wash."
"It All Comes Out in the Wash" is the first single from Lambert's Wildcard album, due out on Nov. 1. She produced her new project with Jay Joyce rather than her longtime go-to, Frank Liddell. "It was a change, but I wanted to go in a different direction for this one than I have in the past because I feel like I was in a new place," Lambert says. "Jay and I had some new chemistry. Sometimes you have to change it up."
Lambert has hinted that her lengthy break in between albums -- during which she toured, recorded and released a new Pistol Annies record, got married and, in her words, "got to live life and just be a person for a while" -- has resulted in bold new songs. “I would call it old Miranda, but a Miranda at a whole new level, if that makes any sense. It’s not going to be love song overload or anything like that," she explains.
"I made a career on being a rock 'n' roller, and I think fans are going to hear that throughout," Lambert adds. "And yeah, there is this vibe of being happy that goes through this album. I am really, really happy.”
Lambert will celebrate her new music with a new iteration of her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour. The all-female trek will begin on Sept. 13 in Uncasville, Conn., and is scheduled to run through Nov. 23, when it will wrap up in Greensboro, N.C. Throughout the tour, Lambert will switch up her lineup of special guests: Maren Morris, Elle King, the Pistol Annies, Tenille Townes, Ashley McBryde and Caylee Hammack are all scheduled to appear at various shows.
