We LOVE that she's continuing to take her sound in this direction!
Mandy Moore recently opened up about her still-untitled upcoming album, but revealed that she's currently being influenced a lot by guitar-driven folk music from the '70s.
"I'm stuck in the '70s. I think it'll always have that kind of influence. Joni Mitchell, Todd Rundgren, Harry Nilsson, McCartney - that's the sort of stuff I'm really inspired and influenced by. No, it's still too early [for a title]. That always comes at the end for me. I can't go into having a collection of songs and already have a name for it. Gosh, that's [Factory-line pop] where I started as a kid when you don't have any creative input or input at all. That's what ends up happening. It's nice to have the control to make choices now. I'm not necessarily sure what it will sound like but I definitely have enough to write about."
Excellent, bb! That's where your best material comes from!
Your style has come such a long way, and we think that you've really found what works for you! Especially because you rarely hear voices like hers in that genre of music!
We're so excited to hear what you're working on!
