I've having the same problem and I think it has to do with a Premium session ending after the device has been paused for a while. When a Premium session ends there's a chime that plays and then it returns you to the station you were listening to before the Premium session started. I know my phone is about to start playing randomly because it chimes out of nowhere and I make a mad dash to shut it off before it starts blasting music. What I think is happening is that there is a "token" for your Premium session that is set to timeout after a certain period of time even if the device is paused. A Premium session lasts about 30 minutes or so. If you pause it you can resume the session but you can't pause it forever. Therefore I think what's happening is the Premium session eventually timesout and that's why it happens randomly after you've been listening - the session timesout, the chime happens telling you the session ended, and then it returns to the previous station. I'm not a developer but I do have a computer science background and this is logically what makes sense to me based on my experiences with it. I haven't tested it and I could be completely wrong but as I said, based on what happens normally and what happens when it autoplays this makes sense and could be worth investigating.
