The Weight of These Wings will be Lambert's sixth studio album. Her song "Vice," which she debuted in July, is the album's first single.
The last time Lambert released an album was in 2014, back when she was still with fellow country singer Blake Shelton. That album, titled Platinum, features the hits "Automatic," "Somethin' Bad," "Smokin' and Drinkin'" and "Little Red Wagon."
As for the singer, she was supposed to carry out the final stretch of her Keeper of the Flame Tour. But, as reported by Rolling Stone, the artist cancelled the last three dates of the tour in Texas. These shows were supposed to take place in Corpus Christi, Austin and San Antonio from Sept. 15 to 17.
Lambert has not yet issued a statement regarding the cancellation of the shows but according to the site, the singer has been placed by her doctor on vocal rest.
The cancelled dates have not yet been rescheduled but those who have already bought their tickets are eligible for a refund at point of purchase.
