Hear the Pistol Annies' Soul-Baring New Song 'Masterpiece'

The Pistol Annies have released another track from their upcoming album Interstate Gospel. While the previously released (and current single) "Got My Name Changed Back" takes a lighthearted look at the subject of divorce, "Masterpiece" somberly explores the intersection of love and fame and what happens when a relationship unravels in the public eye.

"We ain't the cowboys/ Honey, we're the clowns," Miranda Lambert sings on the track, with bandmates Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley singing harmony. "And they're all standing around laughing/ Like nothing ever happened."

"Masterpiece" is the sixth song released from Interstate Gospel, following "Sugar Daddy," "Best Years of My Life," "Got My Name Changed Back," "Stop Drop and Roll One" and the title track.

Interstate Gospel will be released on Nov. 2. To celebrate the release, the trio will play three shows: the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. on Oct. 25, The Town Hall in New York, N.Y. on Nov. 2 and The Novo in Los Angeles, Calif. on Nov. 7.

'Masterpiece' Lyrics:

Baby we were just a masterpiece
Up there on the wall for all to see
We were bought and sold
We were talked about
Once you've been framed
You can't get out

Who's brave enough to take it down?
Who's fool enough to lose the crown?
We're just another thing they'll all forget about
They'll be standing around laughing
Like nothing ever happened

Baby were were just a rodeo
Shining up our buckles for the show
Our knuckles white
We held on tight
'Cause the longest ride makes the crowd go wild

Who's gonna open up the gate?
No hope of riding to the eight
We ain't the cowboys
Honey, we're the clowns
They're all standing around laughing
Like nothing ever happened

Baby we were just a country song
I'm still doing time, the king is gone
I tried to stand by my man
We were making plans
We were making plans

Who's brave enough to take us down?
Who's fool enough to lose the crown?
Maybe another thing they'll all forget about
They'll be standing around laughing
Like nothing ever happened
