Eight months since the release of her last single, Miranda Lambert is excited to introduce, “Automatic,” the first song from her forthcoming album. Written by Miranda, Nicolle Galyon and Natalie Hemby, the autobiographical song 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.
“‘Automatic’ is a song about the good life,” said Miranda of the single that is available to radio on Wednesday, February 5. “It’s about slowing down, taking a breath and remembering what it’s like to live life a little more simply. It’s not about going back, but reminiscing about what it was like to hang laundry on the line and wait for it to dry and my dad teaching me how to drive my ’55 Chevy that I still have but don’t drive nearly enough,” she said. “The song brings back good memories and it reminds me to take a deep breath and to remember that getting there is half the fun.”
“Automatic” is the debut single from Miranda’s fifth album, which will be released later this year. “It’s always exciting and little bit nerve-wracking to release a new album,” said Miranda. “We’ve been writing and recording since last summer and I’m ready for the fans to hear my new music.”

The GRAMMYs may only be two days away, but they’re not quite yet done announcing the big night’s performers.
Today (Jan. 24), it was revealed that Madonna will hit the stage on Sunday night (Jan. 26). No word yet on what the 7-time GRAMMY winner will perform on the live show being that her last album, MDNA came out in 2012.
Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Miranda Lambert have also been added to the list, performing a tribute to the late Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers. Back in November, Armstrong and Norah Jones released a duets album called Foreverly, which had the two remaking the Everly Brothers 1958 full-length, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us.
Both Armstrong and Lambert are nominated for awards this year: Armstrong for Best Music Film with Green Day’s ¡Cuatro! and Lambert for Best Country Solo Performance with “Mama’s Broken Heart.”
