NASHVILLE – May 27, 2014 – CMT has gone “Platinum” across multiple platforms this week with an exclusive premiere of eight of the new tracks from Miranda Lambert’s highly-anticipated new album. Lambert tweeted about the exclusive stream yesterday and directed fans to visit MirandaLambert.cmt.com to preview tracks from her new album. “Platinum,” Lambert’s fifth album, hits shelves on June 3.
The eight streaming tracks from “Platinum” are:
• “Little Red Wagon”
• “Smokin' and Drinkin'” (feat. Little Big Town)
• “Bathroom Sink”
• “Old Sh!t”
• “Babies Makin’ Babies”
• “Holding On to You”
• “Another Sunday In The South”
The album stream will be promoted across all of CMT’s digital platforms, including CMT.com, CMT Pure, CMT Artists App, CMT HOT 20 COUNTDOWN, CMT Radio Networks and to the network’s more than 7 million social media fans. MTV and VH1’s platforms will also promote the album stream, including VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz Live.” Promotional images will also be running on two Times Square billboards for eight days, with an estimated 24 million unique impressions.
Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert is the reigning four-time CMA and reigning five-time ACM Female Vocalist of the Year. She’s the first to win five consecutive ACM trophies for Female Vocalist. Her last album, “Four The Record,” made history when it debuted atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, making Lambert the first country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of her first four albums debut at No. 1. All four of those albums have also been certified platinum.
The top 10 song “Automatic” is the first single from her highly-anticipated fifth album, “Platinum,” which will be released June 3. The autobiographical song, written by Lambert, Nicolle Galyon and Natalie Hemby, reflects on the days of pay phones, learning to drive a stick shift, driving to Dallas to buy an Easter dress, recording the country countdown on her cassette recorder and more.
