    Miranda Lambert has dropped a cheeky new song titled “Tequila Does.”

    On the playful track, the country singer compares men at a bar to a shot of⁠—you guessed it⁠—tequila. At the end of the day, she admits she would rather go home with a bottle of the hard stuff than any man. “’Cause they don’t love me like tequila does / Nobody can / They don’t give me that border town buzz / Like tequila does,” she sings.

    “‘Tequila Does’ is country, and country music makes me happy,” Lambert said in a press statement. “No matter how rock or edgy or scorned you can get, when you come back to a country song with a steel guitar, it makes my soul feel like it’s on fire.”

    The new track is a cut from Lambert’s forthcoming album, Wildcard, due out November 1 via RCA Nashville. The record will also include songs such as “Bluebird,” “It All Comes Out in the Wash” and the Maren Morris-assisted “Way Too Pretty for Prison.”
