NEW ALBUM: MNDR | HELL TO BE YOUR BABY
Singer/songwriter/producer named Amanda Warner has released her nine-years-in-the-making sophomore album "Hell to be You Baby." This marks MNDR’s first album in nearly a decade, following her 2012 debut, "Feed Me Diamonds." “I think I let the industry really freak me out about having a kid and being pregnant,” the 39-year-old now admits. “I worked on this album up until two days before Violet was born, and I was terrified that my career would die. And I don’t know if this is a big surprise to you, but the music industry isn’t really stoked on pregnant ladies if you know what I mean.” She snorts derisively at the whole “Bro” aspect of it, she adds, but thanks “All the Gen-Z-ers, who really don’t put up with the indignities of anything, because all that shit is changing. Which is great because being an artist is about having a life experience.” The musician released an EP with Sweet Valley, "Dance 4 a Dollar," in 2015, while she’s also continued to steadily drop singles over the years and write and produce for other artists, including Charli XCX, Calvin Harris, and Carly Rae Jepsen. Before releasing “Hell to Be You Baby,” MNDR released “Love in Reverse” with Empress Of and “Save Me." "Hell to Be You Baby" features guest appearances from Sheer Mag’s Tina Halladay, Girli, Choir Boy, Ssion, and Hirakish.
