Pistol Annies are giving fans the chance to hear their new album, Annie Up, ahead of its official May 7 release day. The full 12-song album is available for streaming in its entirety on www.amazon.com/PistolAnnies.
“We are so ready for this album to be out and hear what y’all think about the music,” Miranda Lambert said. “And when it’s in stores, I’ll be in there moving our record to the front of the shelf and puttin’ everyone else’s album behind ours,” added Angaleena Presley.
The trio will celebrate the release of Annie Up with a performance of their new single, “Hush Hush,” on the Today Show and that night, perform on the Late Show With David Letterman. On Wednesday, May 8, they will head to The View where they will debut the ballad and album’s closing track “I Hope You’re The End of My Story.”
While the three women wrote every song on the album, a fourth ‘Annie’ was there for the entire process and inspired the song “Don’t Talk About It Tina.” “That would be ‘Mother Bra’,” Angaleena said. “I have a huge, industrial strength, four hook, thirty-six Double D, hideous ‘Mother Bra’ that has been on every one of our adventures.
“We found her floating in the pool in Mexico, at the concierge desk at the hotel in Las Vegas, she has a mind of her own,” Ashley Monroe said.
“My friend Tina was on the road with us one weekend and Mother Bra was laying out on the stove and Tina said ‘Oh my gosh whose bra is this,’” Miranda said.
“And I was laying in my bed and yelled, “Don’t talk about it Tina, just look away,” Angaleena said. “And so we started writing,” Miranda explained. “And the next thing you know we have a song about my friend Tina and ‘Mother Bra.”
Annie Up hits stores May 7.
