Grab your Kleenex "This Is Us" fans because, after nearly a decade, Mandy Moore is getting closer to releasing new music. The “Candy” singer and the rest of the NBC all-star cast, made their PaleyFest appearance on March 24, which is where she opened up a bit about what we can expect from her upcoming EP.
For the past couple of weeks, Moore has been spending most of her time writing music. “My goal is to have some semblance of like an EP or an album or something ready to go by the time we're done,” she said about her plans while on hiatus.
The singer-songwriter and actress has already done some singing on the show as her character, Rebecca, and says she’s open to the idea of doing more of that in the future. “I'd like to think that Rebecca still has some music in her,” she tells AXS. “Especially post-Jack; like maybe that's a way that she's coping with her grief.” Moore then played with the thought of even singing in prosthetics, so that she and co-star Chrissy Metz could give fans a taste of something that would involve both of their characters.
Moore is working on her upcoming EP with her husband, Taylor Goldsmith (of Dawes), along with some of her friends. “I don’t know,” she answered pondering what the finished product might look like. “I don't know what it's going to be just yet.”
During the March 24 PaleyFest event, Moore was joined by Milo Ventimiglia (Jack), Chrissy Metz (Kate), Sterling K. Brown (Randall), Justin Hartley (Kevin), Susan Kelechi Watson (Beth), Jon Huertas (Miguel), Melanie Liburd (Zoe), Dan Fogelman (creator and executive producer), Isaac Aptaker (executive producer), Elizabeth Berger (executive producer), and a special guest appearance was made by Phylicia Rashad (Carol Clarke).
"This Is Us" airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC.
