NEW MUSIC: MANDY MOORE | IN REAL LIFE + ANNOUNCES UPCOMING NEW ALBUM

Mandy Moore will release her new full-length studio album, "In Real Life," via Verve Forecast on May 13th, 2022. The new album serves as a follow-up to "Silver Landings," the critically acclaimed album that marked Moore’s first new body of work in over a decade and was released in March 2020 on the edge of the pandemic. "In Real Life" brings a new level of self-possession to Moore’s songwriting, imbuing each track with both detailed storytelling and lucid self-reflection. From the first seconds of the album’s opening title track, Moore fully immerses the listener in her intimate lyricism and kaleidoscopic sound.

Produced by Mike Viola (Andrew Bird, Ondara, Lori McKenna), "In Real Life" expands on the whirlwind creative momentum Moore first set into motion on 2020’s "Silver Landings." To that end, Moore matches the album’s powerful emotional current with a gloriously unpredictable sound, touched with elements of everything from jangly college-rock to cinematic synth-pop to classic singer/songwriter simplicity. Along with the album's announcement, Moore has announced an expansive summer headlining tour for North America, her first in over a decade, and is set to perform at Newport Folk Festival in July. The tour will kick off at the Variety Playhouse on June 10 in Atlanta, GA and will visit 26 major cities, including Webster Hall in New York on June 15, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on June 25, and The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles on July 22.
