Mandy, 35, announced on January 14 that her upcoming album title Silver Landings will be released on March 6, 2020. The singer’s last album, Amanda Leigh, dropped in May 2009.
In a press release, the actress revealed there will be 10 songs. The final song shares the same name as the album title. The song "became emblematic of the journey she's been through in the past decade, what it took to get to the point of re-embracing this part of her life, and the expectations therein," according to the press release.
Mandy dropped the first single off the album “When I Wasn’t Watching You” in September 2019 and followed by “I’d Rather Lose” in November 2019.
The actress later dropped the single “Save a Little For Yourself” on January 13 along with a music video. The singer croons about the downside of falling in love too deeply. “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," she said in a statement.
“Sometimes writing a song feels like giving myself the advice I know I need the most and it's often the hardest to heed,” Mandy added. “It makes the song almost a mantra of sorts — something I know I'll continue learning because it bears repeating.”
The A Walk To Remember actress’ new album has an earthy sound to it, which Mandy described as “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.”
Mandy’s new album was recorded live with a full band in a Los Angeles studio. She worked with her husband Taylor Goldsmith, who is a musician, on the latest project.
The singer plans to go on a 30-city tour in North America for her new album beginning on March 20 until May 9.
Mandy claimed in a New York Times exposé in February 2019 that her ex-husband, music producer Ryan Adams was a huge reason why she didn’t release new music in nearly a decade. "His controlling behavior essentially did block my ability to make new connections in the industry during a very pivotal and potentially lucrative time — my entire mid-to-late 20s,” she said.
