No “Nonsense” here — Sabrina Carpenter is gearing up for a new album.
The pop star sat down with Maya Hawke for an in depth Interview conversation, in which she opened up about how she’s been feeling about her songwriting process. “I feel a lot freer and more excited about what I’m making now because I’ve realized that genre isn’t necessarily the most important thing,” she revealed. “It’s about honesty and authenticity and whatever you gravitate towards. There were a lot of genres in my last album, and I like to think I’ll continue that throughout writing music.”

Carpenter then confirmed that she’s working on a new album, before reflecting on listening to her “gut” for her 2022 fifth studio album, Emails I Can’t Send. “Unfortunately, you have to allow yourself to get to that point where you’re even able to do that, and until I made this album, I wasn’t at that place where I felt I could,” she shared. “The other day, this guy was like, ‘Life is so long. You just have to follow the things that make you feel something, whether that’s good or bad.’ And I was like, ‘Wow, I always hear life is short.’ But it made me really excited about the fact that I’m going to find my way through.”
The singer’s Emails I Can’t Send, which features hits like “Nonsense,” “Feather” and “Because I Liked a Boy” peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, marking Carpenter’s highest-charting effort on the tally.
