No, he isn’t a country artist, but there’s no denying the insane amount of talent in Miranda Lambert’s boyfriend, Anderson East. And since he is attached to our format in some way, we couldn’t wait to check out his new single, “All On My Mind.” And all we can say is, “Wow!”
Admittedly, we weren’t that educated on Anderson’s music until he got involved with Miranda. But as soon as they announced their relationship, we checked him out and were hooked on his deliciously soulful and raspy vocals. And we were in good company. Well before we jumped on the Anderson train, Chris Stapleton and superstar producer Dave Cobb were among the celebs on board.
On August 15, Anderson released his new single and, of course, the females in our office have one burning question. Is it about Miranda?
The song includes lyrics such as, “You can find my woman dancing in bare feet on a couch in a barroom dress. And I love when my baby looks at me with arms draped around my neck.” So, while we could say that sounds like Miranda, we could also say it sounds like a lot of other free-spirited, strong women. And maybe that’s the point.
According to Rolling Stone, Anderson did co-write the song with Ed Sheeran, Johnny McDaid and Aaron Raitiere, so there could be other femme fatales involved (McDaid is engaged to actress Courteney Cox), but isn’t that the fun of listening to the lyrics? The interpretation?
Anderson will release a music video for “All On My Mind” on August 18.
