Lauded as one of the year’s most anticipated albums prior to release by both Vulture and USA Today, the project has earned rave reviews from Esquire, L.A. Times, Variety, NPR, Stereogum, Paste, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Yahoo Entertainment and more. Lyrically visiting 30+ locations with countless characters along the way, the expansive 15-song project takes listeners on a freewheeling trek from the Mojave Desert to Battambang, Cambodia and everywhere in between. Lambert serves as a co-writer on 14 of the 15 songs, with the only outside cut arriving via a rousing cover of Mick Jagger’s “Wandering Spirit.”
Lambert brought the new music from Palomino as well as her expansive catalog of hits on the road along this weekend as her co-headlining The Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town kicked off in Houston and Dallas, Texas as well as Rogers, Ark. The tour continues this weekend in Charleston, S.C. plus Tampa and West Palm Beach, Fla. with dates through mid-June.
