Anne-Marie has announced her highly-anticipated second album Therapy, and has unveiled her new collaboration with Niall Horan, "Our Song", to accompany the news.
After announcing "Our Song" last week, Anne-Marie and Niall Horan have unveiled their first collaborative track, which is accompanied by news of Anne-Marie's second album Therapy.
Therapy will follow Anne-Marie's 2018 debut album Speak Your Mind, and although she's yet to unveil the tracklist, it'll feature "Way Too Long", "Don’t Play" with KSI and Digital Farm Animals, and "Our Song".
Anne-Marie's second album was written with Max Martin (Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift), Kamille (Little Mix, Headie One), MNEK, Raye, TMS, Blake Slatkin (The Kid Laroi, 24kGoldn), Ed Sheeran, Nathan Dawe and Plested (Lewis Capaldi), and will feature production from Mojam (Aitch, Fredo), Fred Ball (Rihanna), TMS and Blake Slatkin.
She says of the album, "Ugh, it feels SO GOOD to announce my new album, Therapy. Music is a source of healing for everyone and music is therapy itself, right?! I hadn’t realised until we were hit by the pandemic just how much I NEEDED music. I need to perform. I need to write. My lyrics are my open diary to you all and writing this album has helped me focus and understand my feelings. I needed this album."
"As well as seeking therapy from writing and music in general, I’ve also been on a journey of seeing a psychiatrist this past year and it has changed my life," Anne-Marie continues. "I’ve always tried to be as open as I can with my fans about my own journey and through seeing a professional, I’ve been able to start combatting and understand the anxieties my brain has dealt me over the years. I am learning, and I am progressing."
She adds, "This album helped me get to that place too and it encapsulates lots of feelings and emotions, whether it’s tracks that focus on my own ride, or the ones that I have just loved making, and I hope you can lose yourself in it. I made this for you and me."
