Mandy Moore is returning to her roots…well sort of.
On Tuesday (Jan. 14), the musician-turned-actress announced plans to release the long-awaited follow-up to 2009’s Amanda Leigh. Titled Silver Linings, the new record is due out March 6 through Verve Forecast. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on Moore’s website.
Silver Linings was produced by Mike Viola (who also produced Amanda Leigh). The forthcoming release features Moore’s husband Taylor Goldsmith as well as Rilo Kiley’s Jason Boesel.
In conjunction with the album’s announcement, Moore has released the music video for its latest single “Save a Little for Yourself.”
“Sometimes writing a song feels like giving myself the advice I know I need the most, and it’s often the hardest to heed,” Moore said in a press statement about the newly-released song.
“It makes the song almost a mantra of sorts—something I know I’ll continue learning because it bears repeating. ‘Save a Little for Yourself’ is sort of the other half of a love song that we don’t always talk about or acknowledge. Sure, we should open ourselves up, let people in and love them as wholly as possible, but none of that carries any water if we’re not taking care of ourselves first and foremost. It might not be as romantic, but it’s an equally important part of the equation.”

Silver Linings has already produced two other singles. “When I Wasn’t Watching” was released in September while “I’d Rather Lose” was released in November accompanying her tour announcement.
In support of the new alum, Moore will hit the touring circuit off and on throughout the first half of the year. Her upcoming outing kicks off on March 20 at the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts in Pittsburgh and wraps up on May 9 at the Gothic Theatre in Denver. The full list of dates can be found here.
Before embarking on her cross-country trek, Moore will perform at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles on four separate nights (Jan. 18, Jan. 25, Feb. 1, and Feb. 8).
