Exciting news for all of you Miranda Lambert fans … Miranda has announced the release date for her newest album Platinum.
It has been three years since Miranda released her last album Four The Record, and although a date for the release has been set, fans may be a bit disappointed to know they will have to wait until June 3 to pick up their copy.
So, why Platinum? Miranda explains that it is her favorite color. “Platinum is my hair color, and my wedding ring, and the color of my Airstream and the name of one of my favorite beers,” she said. “It’s about a lifestyle.”
Even though she hasn’t released an album recently, she has still been working diligently on making her next album perfect. She has been spending time working with the Pistol Annies on their latest album Annie Up, and writing songs for Platinum; she wrote over half of the 16 songs.

“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,” Miranda 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.”
Miranda reveals that Platinum will still exemplify girl power, but in a more toned down sort of way. “There’s humor on this album, and nostalgia, and it’s feminine,” said Miranda. “There’s girl power, not in the ‘I’m gonna burn your house down and kill you, but more where I am as a 30- year-old woman and wife. I’m more settled in life, embracing the good and the bad, and that’s all reflected on Platinum. I still blaze around – but in a less chaotic way.”
