Mandy Moore Returns With New Single & Video “When I Wasn’t Watching”

Singer-songwriter Mandy Moore has shared a soul-stirring new single titled “When I Wasn’t Watching.” A classic piece of California pop centered on her captivating vocals, the song is set to appear on Moore’s forthcoming full-length effort – her first album in over a decade, due out via Verve Forecast early next year. Go to watch the video for “When I Wasn’t Watching,” a softly stunning visual directed by Lauren Dukoff, photographer/director known for her work with Adele, Beyoncé, and Lady Gaga.

Produced by her longtime collaborator Mike Viola (Jenny Lewis, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness), “When I Wasn’t Watching” channels the intense self-reflection Moore experienced in making her return to her music. “The idea of diving back into music after so much time and personal change was really intimidating to me for a while,” says Moore. “But then I finally realized: I’m the only person who can make this move. It all has to start with me.”

Thanks mainly to Moore’s gracefully crafted lyrics and warm vocal performance, “When I Wasn’t Watching” also speaks to a more universal truth. “I think everyone’s had the experience of feeling lost and not quite understanding how you’ve found yourself at a certain point in your life,” Moore says. “And I think the key is not to judge yourself for that. I’m a big believer in the idea that what you’ve journeyed through is ultimately going to factor into the person you become, and how you’ll greet whatever big challenge you face next.”
