“Most of the things I had planned this summer didn’t end up happening, but there is something I hadn’t planned on that DID happen,” the 30-year-old singer said.

“Before this year, I probably would’ve overwrought when to release this music at the ‘perfect’ time, but the times we’re living in keep reminding me that nothing is guaranteed.

“My gut is telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world. That’s the side of uncertainty can get on board with,” added the singer-songwriter.
