Mandy Moore has signed with Sire Records, the Warner Bros. imprint whose roster includes the Distillers, the Von Bondies and Hot Hot Heat, she told Reuters on Friday. Moore said she has started writing songs for her new album, but does not yet know how it will sound.
In some ways, Moore said she felt pressure following up an album featuring “11 or 12 of the best songs out there,” with a set of her own music. On the other hand, “I have no expectations, and people out there really have no expectations because I haven’t had great musical success. So that allows me the freedom and creativity to do whatever I want.”
