Alyssas Milano has a new album out, and it’s all about getting the music out of her head.
The songwriting, lyrics and music for her new project, Alyssys Embrace, is just as much about her mental health as her musical ability, as Milano talks to The Associated Press.
“I feel like I’ve been so isolated in my own world that I’ve kind of been doing everything I could to just push myself outside my comfort zone,” she says.
“And that’s a good thing.
I think I’ve found a little bit of freedom.
And I think this is kind of the beginning of a new chapter.”
Milano is the latest in a long line of artists to release their music online, and the singer-songwriter says she’s always been a fan of digital music.
But she’s also noticed an increased use of social media in the past few years, particularly by celebrities and athletes.
“It’s been so hard for me to be alone and have a relationship,” she explains.
“And then to have the technology come in and make that possible has been really, really good for me.”
So I think it’s really cool, and I’m so grateful to the people who are using it for me.
“Milanos songwriting is so grounded and real, she’s even written songs that take place in real life, and in her personal life as well.
For the first time in her life, she says she has a boyfriend.”
I’m like, ‘Man, I wish I could be him.'””
I’m just so lucky to be able to talk to him.
I’m like, ‘Man, I wish I could be him.'”
And it’s also really cool to have a boyfriend, she adds.
“Because, you know, when you have a partner and a relationship, you can actually express yourself.
You can actually write about your own stuff.”
