Mandy Moore Releases New Song “I’d Rather Lose”
- Back in September, American singer-songwriter and actress Mandy Moore made a comeback with “When I Wasn’t Watching” for the first time in a decade.
Following the song, she released a new song “I’d Rather Lose” on November 1st. It was written by Mandy Moore, Sean Douglas and Taylor Goldsmith.
Mandy Moore said, “We live in a cultural moment of ‘win at all costs’ and that may afford small victories in the short term but this song tries to explore the idea of trying to live according to your moral compass, whatever that might be. It’s easy to run out of patience and give into temptations on any given day, but it seems like the only way of achieving the kind of long term peace of mind we’re all looking for, requires a recommitment to the concepts of honesty and integrity that ground us. On a macro level, that’s what this song aims to hit on—abandoning some game you never subscribed to in the first place.”
- Both songs of “I’d Rather Lose” and “When I Wasn’t Watching” will appear on her forthcoming seventh album. It is her first album in ten years.
“I wanted to make a very California-sounding record—something that feels sunshiny and airy and natural, something you could listen to driving up and down the PCH with all the windows rolled down on a beautiful weekend day,” she said. “I very much feel like I’m at the helm of the ship now, where I’m stepping back into music completely on my own terms. Everything that’s happened up until this point has gotten me to where I am today, and I’m so excited to just keep moving forward.”
