Miranda Lambert says that her upcoming new album, which features her newly released songs “It All Comes Out In The Wash” and “Locomotive,” has a bit of a rock edge.

Miranda told Billboard, “I’m really excited about that. This record has a lot of little rock and roll influences in it. I think spending a lot of time in New York City kind of brought that into my art. I’ve also been on a huge rock and roll kick lately. I’ve been on a Fleetwood Mac, Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin kick, so I think some of that’s reflected as well.”

Lambert explains that she’s been exploring the music scene in the Big Apple, “I sometimes take myself on dates. The other day, I took myself on a date. My husband was busy and so I went and had dinner and then went to the Red Lion to hear a rock cover band and got a few drinks. It was awesome. I love that about that city — you can kind of just walk down the street and stumble into somewhere that has something amazing happening. I love the energy of that city and just the inspiration you can get if you look for it.”

The yet to be titled album is expected to be released sometime this fall.
