"I’m ready to rock.”

By Annie Reuter

A month after she released “Automatic,” the nostalgic lead single off her forthcoming album, Miranda Lambert announced today (March 10) that her new record will be titled Platinum and that it will drop on June 3.

Platinum comes nearly three years after the release of Lambert’s last album, 2011’s For the Record. The ACM Award nominee explained that she didn’t want to rush the recording process.

“From the day you kinda go I need to start looking for songs and writing songs, it feels like no matter how much time you have, you’re rushed,” Lambert said. “And so I didn’t want to rush it at all. To me it’s all about timing and making sure that you can feel like you can finally sit there and go, OK, the album’s done, and never have a moment where you go, I wish we could change that or I wish we had a different song.”

Platinum will reportedly include 16 songs, eight of which she wrote or cowrote. While her first single “Automatic” is a song about slowing down and remembering what it’s like to live life more simply, another track, “Bathroom Mirror,” talks about dealing with the tabloids.

Lambert also worked with Carrie Underwood on a track called “Something Bad.”

“We’re really rocking in country music and we’re coming together as a force,” Lambert said.

“To me, like, if you’re sitting on the front row, you might want to scoot back. It’s a force. It just feels exciting to me. I’m ready to rock.”
