Mandy Moore has made a name for herself as an actress over the past decade. However, last year the former pop star returned to her roots when she released her first album in 11 years, Silver Landings.
It has now been confirmed that Moore will not only be releasing new music but will also be touring "very soon". In a lengthy Instagram post, the actress and singer reflected on her canceled tour last year.
“Just under 2 years ago my first record for 11 years came out.
“We were only 4 days away from my first tour since 2007 when the pandemic brought the world to a halt.
"It was hard to sort through the myriad emotions it took to make this music: the disappointment and heartache of unfulfilled dreams…. as we collectively grapple and mourn the tragedy that was unfolding across the globe.
"So I turned back to music because that was the only catharsis I could find while stuck at home."
Moore's post wasn't all doom and gloom though, she went on to announce some exciting news about new music releases.

"Anyway…. All this to tell you that new music is coming soon… and a tour!
"And I'm staying present and open to that experience unfolding exactly as it's meant to," Moore said in the Post.
Moore's first release from her latest album – and the single that marked her return to music after more than a decade – was called 'When I Wasn't Watching'. The track was released on September 17, 2019 and received positive reviews from music critics. However, the track only temporarily stayed on the music charts, peaking at number 24 on Billboard's US Alternative Digital Song Sales.
