Meghan Trainor’s new album, Takin’ It Back, is out tomorrow, October 21st, and we couldn’t be more excited!
October 21st is quickly becoming one of the most important album release dates in 2022. Taylor Swift’s new album Midnights will be released, as well as Arctic Monkeys’ new album, The Car. Carly Rae Jepsen’s new album, The Loneliest Time, will also be released. How could tomorrow’s music get any better?
Well, good news: it can!
Meghan Trainor’s new album will also be released tomorrow!
With her new album Takin’ It Back, the singer of All About That Base and Dear Future Husband returns to her roots. This is the singer’s first studio album since the pandemic. In January 2020, her album Treat Myself was released. Trainor has been looking for a way to recreate the sound that the world has come to know and love her for since that time. The interviewer began to ask about the album in a Rolling Stones interview:
“I think it could also be like taking back-,”
But Trainor quickly finished the thought.
“What? Taking back my power? Yeah, because also during the pandemic, I lost that. I for suresies lost it, because I went to an event where Miley Cyrus was at. And my team was like, ‘You know her, go say hi!’ And I was like, ‘I don’t want to bug her.’ And they’re like, ‘What?’ I just felt like anything I ever achieved is all gone. I haven’t been out in public and [for] so long trying to be safe, and it crippled me a little bit with my confidence. And so coming back with music, I was also so hard on myself. I thought all these songs were trash. Every idea I would come up with, I would say, ‘Is this trash or amazing?’ ‘Is this garbage or is this dope?’ And everyone was like, ‘This is your best work yet.’ I think when I started seeing [and] hearing people that don’t have to be nice to me tell me that this music is good, that’s when I was like, ‘Maybe I do have something special.'”
We can’t wait to hear Meghan Trainor’s iconic voice again!
