Track List Revealed For Upcoming New Album Platinum - Available For Pre-Order Now 

Toronto, ON – It was a big night in Las Vegas on Sunday for superstar Miranda Lambert. She performed her single “Automatic” for the first time on national television, she had the honor of paying tribute to her hero Merle Haggard on his prolific 50 years in country music by performing “Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down” and “I’m a Lonesome Fugitive” with George Strait, and she won her fifth consecutive Female Vocalist of the Year award, setting an ACM record for the most consecutive wins in that category. In all, Miranda took home three ACM honors, with the addition of wins for Single Record of the Year (“Mama’s Broken Heart”) and Vocal Event of the Year, together with Keith Urban, for “We Were Us.”  

"Tonight has not even begun to sink in yet. It probably won't for a week," said an exuberant Miranda. "I can't believe that this is my job. I got a picture with George Strait and Garth Brooks, I hung out with Trisha Yearwood and practically stalked Faith Hill, it was a great night," she laughed. 

With the June 3 release of her new album, Platinum, now less than two months away, Miranda is eager for fans to hear the album, which features several guest artists. As previously announced, Carrie Underwood joins on “Somethin’ Bad,” a song written by Chris DeStefano, Brett James and Priscilla Renea. “I’m a huge fan of Carrie Underwood. She’s such a badass singer,” Miranda said. “This rocker came across as I was listening to songs, and I decided to send it to her. To me, this song meshes our styles, you know? It gives her time to be ‘Before He Cheats’ Carrie, and it gives me time to take off running and jump to hit some of those high notes.” 

One of Miranda’s favorite bands, Little Big Town, guests on “Smokin’ and Drinkin’.” “I’m obsessed with Little Big Town,” said Miranda. “They got pitched this song, too, but I got it first. Karen told me, ‘You have a song I want!’ So I said, ‘If I cut it, will y’all sing on it?’ This was at the CMT Awards, just joking around in the dressing room. But when I went in to record it, I thought, ‘If Little Big Town wants to sing on my record, we are damn sure taking advantage of it!’ I can’t even imagine what it would sound like without them.”

Another guest appearance comes courtesy of The Time Jumpers on “All That’s Left.” “Another one of my favorite songs on the record … okay, they’re all my favorites!” said Miranda. “I went to see Beyoncé in Dallas, and I was driving home the next day by myself, listening to Bluegrass Junction on SiriusXM. I heard this song, and I immediately loved it. We decided to record it western swing and get cool harmonies, and have fiddles, which meant we had to have The Time Jumpers on it. They’re the most talented people in the whole world, in one band. It’s ridiculous.”

Platinum will be released June 3 and can be preordered now on iTunes

On April 19th, Record Store Day, Third Man Records will present Jack White recording the World’s Fastest Released Record, studio-to-store, in the history of mankind. 
You heard correctly. First thing in the morning, Jack White will take the stage in Third Man's blue room and record direct-to-acetate what will serve as the limited edition version of his next single, a live rendition of the title track from his upcoming LP Lazaretto. The masters will be rushed over to United Record Pressing who will immediately begin pressing 45s. The sleeves will be printed from pictures taken at the show. The finished records will be whisked back to Third Man to sell to awaiting fans. All in the same day. All in a matter of mere hours. As long as there are fans in line waiting to buy the single, United will continue to press and deliver them to Third Man to sell. Even if it takes 

In addition, Whirlwind Heat will appear at Third Man to play their first live show since 2006 (and likely their last ever), as their TMR classic Do Rabbits Wonder? LP is reissued on a variety of colored vinyl for Record Store Day.
Plus a great selection of local vendors will be on hand to keep everyone well-fed and refreshed… and there will, as always, be some surprises.

Tickets for this whole day —“Ultra Tickets” — are extremely limited and will be available exclusively through The Third Man Records Vault to Platinum Members. Ultra Ticket holders will get to watch Jack White live recording his World’s Fastest Record, Whirlwind Heat’s afternoon performance, and will receive copies of both The World’s Fastest Record 7” and the Whirlwind Heat Record Store Day LP release--all without having to wait in line! Vault Platinum members who are ticket holders need only show up, see Jack White play, hang out for a bit and eat, watch Whirlwind Heat (last show EVER??) and then, as they leave, pick up their bag with both RSD releases. No lines. No stress.  

For those who can’t score tickets, The World’s Fastest Record will be made available for sale from the front of Third Man Records as soon as copies are pressed. Anybody who shows up that day during business hours wanting to purchase a copy will get one. Third Man promises to deliver until all customers are satisfied (one per customer, obviously!). The World’s Fastest Record will only be available at Third Man Records on Record Store Day. One time only!

(Toronto, ON) – With anticipation mounting, RCA Records moves up the release date for Grammy® Award winner Ray Lamontagne’s 5th studio album, Supernova to April 29th.   Fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive "Supernova", "Airwaves" and “Lavender” instantly in addition to receiving a fourth pre-release track from the album on April 15th.
Last week, LaMontagne released his first music video ever for the single, “Supernova” via the Huffington Post ( "Supernova" was released in February and is one of Ray’s fastest growing singles at AAA radio, with the song rocketing into the top 5 within two weeks of impact in the U.S. The single also landed on Entertainment Weekly’s Must List stating the song, “captures young love with a rustic rock sound that evokes Van Morrison and Bob Seger.” Additionally, both People Magazine and Rolling Stone gave the single 3 1/2 stars.  
LaMontagne is set to embark on his 42 city date Supernova Summer Tour which starts on May 27th in Portland, Maine including 2 dates in Toronto at Massey Hall. For more information on the tour and to purchase tickets please visit
Supernova was produced by Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) and recorded in Nashville, TN. Ray spoke with Time Magazine about the album stating, "For the longest time these songs were eluding me. I felt like a kid trying to collect lightning bugs. I’d catch a glimpse out of the corner of my eye and run for it, but the light would go out just as I thought I’d gotten hold of one. But eventually I caught on to their game. I stopped chasing them altogether. Instead I just sat there as if I were completely disinterested in them. And wouldn’t you know it, one by one they came to me! Flew right into my jar."
Ray LaMontagne has released 4 studio albums (Trouble, Till The Sun Turns Black, Gossip in the Grain and God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise). Ray’s most recent critically acclaimed, Grammy® Award winning album God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise released in 2010 debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Digital Album chart in the U.S. This marked a personal sales best for Ray and tied his debut chart position at #3 with Gossip in the Grain. God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise garnered 3 Grammy® Award nominations including the coveted Song of The Year category for “Beg Steal or Borrow” and won the Grammy® for Best Contemporary Folk Album. The first single off the album, “Beg Steal or Borrow” became Ray’s first U.S. radio #1.
