Record label conflicts with Epic Records prolonged the release of Alice Smith's sophomore album 'She,' but the Grammy nominated was inspired to move swiftly with her newfound "ambition", due to her first child.
"Her arrival has enhanced and intensified my ambition. Make no mistake, I’ve always been ambitious, but I was quietly ambitious," Smith told OkayPlayer.
The seven year break between albums made each step on producing the new project important. "[I have] a new perspective on what it actually takes to get to where I have to go to be who I have to be for her to be who I think that she will be," she adds.
The album theme of "freedom" speaks to relationships, interpersonal skills, and empowerment. The new album 'She' will be available on March 19, 2013.
