"I never meant to take a hiatus," the singer said in the fall issue of Citizens of Humanity magazine. "In fact, the music for this album was created so fast -- the fastest I've ever created music before. It was like raining down every night, like storms of music was just coming out."

"I came in already knowing what I wanted to start to talk about. I knew the topics that I wanted to address and I know who I wanted to assemble to help me create this very powerful sonic and lyrical journey," she added.
