I pretty much took three years off because it was just too hard for me to figure out how to do it and now I'm missing... It's just nine shows so if it's a disaster, I won't do that again for a little while. This song is called Up All Night and it's about learning that I was pregnant and touring while I was pregnant with my first child, and the first couple of months after he was born, and just all about that transition.I started to just miss playing shows and writing shows so I just wrote this record, and I'm just kind of going to figure it out as it happens. If it's good, then I'll do some more touring later this summer. Like ever since I was three, I've been writing my own songs and I've always loved performing my songs, and it's just such a part of who I am. Remember that day we got the news I was scared as hell and so were you But I took your hand and we jumped in I took you on tour But you were yet to be born We crossed the ocean from shore to shore And our love was sworn then And this need to protect you And so I pray the world is good to you And I've been up all night But these are the best days of my life And it's the time of the year for a Change and it's covered in love You've taught me so much In just a few days I'm a better woman in so many ways And I swear I'll give it all back to you My mind's a mess and my back's aching I see you smile, I'd do it over again And this is the beginning And this need to protect you And so I pray the world is good to you And I've been up all night But these are the best days of my life And it's the time of the year for a Change and it's covered in love And this need to protect you And so I pray the world is good to you And I've been up all night But these are the best days of my life And it's the time of the year for a Change and it's covered in love In The Next Life, you know, my life is so different now so I really drew from my past a lot and kind of imagined my future.Her debut album, , came out in 2005 and since then she has released five more albums including her latest, 2016's In The Next Life.
