As for the rest of her album, she has worked with Iggy Pop and The Flaming Lips to let loose her inner rock goddess. Listen to her new single below, and the full interview at the bottom!
Rehabbing Lions & Diving With Sharks:
“The theme of this record is magic. I went on a spirit journey by myself. No security guard. No managers. I just went around the world and lived on a boat. I was in Africa rehabilitating baby lions. I went diving with great white sharks, and just went on this crazy spirit quest. I got hypnotized, and I just really wanted this record to be really positive, really raw, really vulnerable and about the magic of life.”
Hypnotism & Past Life Experiences:
“I got hypnotized and went into a past life experience. It was incredibly emotional and was one of the most insane things I’ve ever experienced. I wrote a song called “Past Lives” about how I believe you can really recognize somebody through their eyes. I’ve had a few different experiences where I recognize people. I feel like I know them just by looking at them in the eyes for the first time. I wrote a song about that.”
Ghosts Make The Best Boyfriends:
“I also have this song called ‘Supernatural‘. It’s about experiences with the supernatural…but in a sexy way.” She laughs and continues, “Well, I don’t know his name! He was a ghost. It was just like… I had a couple experiences with the supernatural. I’m very open to it.”
On Piano Ballads In Nashville:
“I definitely have a lot of ballads. I have one song called “Love Into The Light” that I wrote by myself at my piano in Nashville in a couple of minutes. The lyrics are ‘I know we’re all different, but baby that’s life. All the differences, they make me feel alive.’”
