Miranda Lambert Will Appear on Green Day’s New Compilation Album

Miranda Lambert knows just how to bring the right amount of guts and grit to her records, so Green Day knew they needed the country singer’s powerhouse vocals on their latest compilation album release.

The iconic punk rock band enlisted Lambert’s vocals on the track “Ordinary World,” which was originally featured on Green Day’s 2016 record, Revolution Radio.

Although many Lambert fans may hear of this news and immediately question how the two opposites attracted to each other, Lambert actually teamed up with Green Day back at the 2014 GRAMMY Awards to honor the late Phil Everly. The collaborative performance made two worlds collide on the famous Everly Brothers song, “When Will I Be Loved,” in a beautiful acoustic manner.

Lambert has accomplished quite a lot in the past year of her career, with the release of her poignant two-disc album, The Weight of These Wings. Hitting the radio airwaves with songs like “Vice” and “Tin Man,” she earned respect from her peers and critics alike for her vulnerable lyrical content throughout the close-to-home project.

The “We Should Be Friends” singer also received a handful of nominations for the 51st Annual CMA Awards, including nods in the Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year and Music Video of the Year categories. She also recently scored a nomination for Favorite Female Artist—Country for the 2017 American Music Awards.

Hitting the road at the beginning of 2018, Lambert plans to embark on her Livin’ Like Hippies Tour throughout the winter. Fans can find more information about dates and tickets on her official website.
