Watch Miranda Lambert Perform ‘Pink Sunglasses’ and ‘Ugly Lights’ on ‘Late Night’

Miranda Lambert‘s album The Weight of These Wings is crammed full of catchy tracks, so she decided to perform two songs that weren’t singles from the record on Late Night With Seth Meyers this week. Lambert took the stage to sing “Pink Sunglasses” and “Ugly Lights,” both tracks from The Nerve, the first disc of The Weight of These Wings (the second being The Heart).

Lambert worked on The Weight of These Wings from 2015 to 2016 and released the album with RCA Records Nashville on November 18, 2016 with “Vice” as the first single. Since then, “We Should Be Friends,” “Tin Man,” and “Keeper of the Flame” became singles as the album was certified Platinum and won the ACM Award for Album of the Year in 2017.

“Pink Sunglasses” provides a dash of summery fun in its mixture of spoken word and country music twang. “Always makes the world look a little bit better/In my pink sunglasses/You can try ’em anytime you need a change of the weather/At $9.99, I’m perfectly disguised/When I’m walking by, I wanna roll my eyes,” Lambert sings with her signature brand of sass. And if you want to see the world through her eyes, she even sells some pink sunglasses of her own thorough her website.

When Lambert took the Late Night stage again, she played “Ugly Lights,” which she wrote with Nataline Hemby and Liz Rose. The song depicts the moment the allure of the night comes to a halt, “when the ugly lights come on” in the bar. She reckons, “I don’t try to justify/The reason I’m not living right/I wear my sadness like a souvenir/I drink too much to fall apart that’s how I fight this broken heart/So what, if I feel comfortable in here.”

Lambert’s Late Night performances show how relaxed she is on stage despite the massive TV audience watching her sing. Of course, this country star is accustomed to huge crowds as she’s currently co-headlining The Bandwagon Tour with Little Big Town through August.
