The 37-year-old country singer, who has been a vocal advocate of racial equality over the years, dropped some big news about her music plans.
“I’m finally putting out an album, like a full album after 10 years. I’m finally putting out an album and I’m so excited,” Mickey said. “These are songs that I’ve been writing for 10 years. Like, these aren’t like brand new songs that you’ll be hearing. These are songs that I’ve had that have been in my email inbox when they were sent from the producer for years and I’m finally getting the chance to to put them out. People are finally hearing me, they’re hearing like, oh, that makes sense. She’s like, this is her, she’s been here this whole time. Just people couldn’t see me. Now, they can see me. And I’m so excited to be putting this music out.”
Mickey was asked what fans can expect and she said, “Very personal? You know, I love to write real time and right, what’s going on? So there’s this one song that I love called, ‘Do You Really Want to Know?’ And it really seems like the intro to all of this, because it talks about what’s been going on with my life. Like, I started going to therapy. I’ve tried to change from within in order to be able to put music out and be able to write music and that’s on there. I also have a country trap song, which I’m so excited.”
“There’s even a song about me loving my hair and, and that was something that’s taken me a long time to accept,” she added.
Mickey says the new music should be released in August. Listen to the full interview below!
