Most anticipated albums of 2014
Beck, Wu-Tang Clan, U2, and even more Kanye West
Miranda Lambert - 'Platinum'
Release date: June 3
Why it's anticipated: It will be nearly three years since Lambert’s last album by the time “Platinum” drops, but she’s remained queen of the country charts despite radio’s obsession with bro-country. On “Platinum,” she offers up 16 songs, half of which she co-wrote, that she told Associated Press span style and genre. First single, “Automatic,” is a sweet look back at a simpler time.
