Miranda has taken her time releasing it. Come June, it will have been more than two-and-a-half years since she released her last one. In that time she toured, worked on music with her side project, The Pistol Annies, and says she was making sure she was picking the right music for her next album.
“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. 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.”
Among the 16 songs on it is one with Carrie Underwood called “Something Bad.” “We’re really rocking in country music and we’re coming together as a force,” she says about the song. As for the rest of the album, she says it’s not ‘typical Miranda,’ saying “it’s feminine.”
“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.”
