Mandy Moore Reveals Upcoming Album's Title and Release Date: Songwriting 'Feels Like Giving Myself Advice'
"I wanted to make a very California-sounding record - something that feels sunshiny and airy and natural," Mandy Moore said
Mandy Moore is dropping the details on her musical comeback.
The singer and actress, 35, revealed her first album in 10 years, titled Silver Landings, will be released March 6. She also dropped another new track, “Save a Little for Yourself,” on Tuesday.
“Sometimes writing a song feels like giving myself the advice I know I need the most and it’s often the hardest to heed,” Moore tells PEOPLE in a statement. “It makes the song almost a mantra of sorts – something I know I’ll continue learning because it bears repeating.”
“’Save a Little for Yourself’ is sort of the other half of a love song that we don’t always talk about or acknowledge,” she added. “Sure, we should open ourselves up, let people in and love them as wholly as possible but none of that carries any water if we’re not taking care of ourselves first and foremost. It might not be as romantic, but it’s an equally important part of the equation.”
Moore’s upcoming album was recorded live to tape with a full band in a Los Angeles studio. Produced by her long-time collaborator Mike Viola, the album features Moore’s singer-songwriter husband Taylor Goldsmith.
“I wanted to make a very California-sounding record – something that feels sunshiny and airy and natural, something you could listen to driving up and down the PCH with all the windows rolled down on a beautiful weekend day,” Moore said of her album.
