Miranda Lambert is never one to follow trends. She goes against the grain, setting her own pace and carving out her own path. Such is the way with her brand new single "Automatic," the lead-in to her forthcoming fifth studio album. Autobiographical in nature, the midtempo entry is a fond glance "back before everything become automatic" and samples sounds from her previous work.
In the midst of ever-advancing techonology and social media, this track might find many millennials (like myself) reminscing about the good old days before computers, email and texting. Her approach could come off a little stilted, but if you examine the lyrics a bit, she's simply comenting on the state of our world and bringing that into a new generation.
