Dear EW commenter who watched Scotty McCreery’s new video and wondered, “Has there ever been any country artists—successful ones—that stir the pot a little? You know, edgy, unconventional, dangerous?” it’s time for you to meet Miranda Lambert.

The country superstar, who finally got her due last year with three #1 hits, has released a new song called “Baggage Claim,” the first single off of her forthcoming Four the Record album, dropping this fall.

In typical Miranda Lambert fashion, the song, which features “Georgia Clay” singer Josh Kelley on background vocals, is a cheeky tell-off to a man with too much emotional “baggage” for her no-nonsense taste.

Check it out below:

If you were at all worried that Lambert’s crossover smash “The House That Built Me” would steer her new record in a softer direction, “Baggage Claim” should quell your fears. “Go on and take your little business trip, with that sweet little habit that you can’t kick,” she deadpans before continuing, “You better call your Mama when you get to town, ‘cuz I ain’t gonna be hanging around at the baggage claim.”

And for you fans of “Gunpowder and Lead” and “Kerosene,” Lambert hasn’t lost her affinity for destroying her ex’s stuff. “Come and pick it up, pick it up, before I blow it up in flames,” she warns with a vocal fire of her own. In other words: Don’t screw up, Blake Shelton.

What do you think of the new track, Music Mixers?

    I love that Miranda is finally getting the recognition she deserves. All of her albums are awesome, especially 2007’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I can’t wait for Four The Record!

  • PN

    I think she wants to get back to that no nonsense bad girl approach that defined her first two albums. The last album showed that she’s matured, but don’t forget that she has her bad side when she chews up her two timing cheating men for this next album!
