Singer/actress Mandy Moore recently revealed that her latest album was responsible for pulling her out of deep depression. Moore said that penning songs for her new disc 'Wild Hope' helped her look at the positive side of life.
The 23-year-old was left feeling "sad and confused" and credits her fight to come out from the blues with new album, and predominantly a single, Extraordinary. "I'm a pretty positive person, but about a year and a half ago, I felt like someone dimmed the lights.
I've said depressed before, but it wasn't that I was incapable of going on about my day. I just felt sad and confused.
I was asking, 'Am I really the person I want to be? Am I really fulfilled?" Contactmusic quoted her, as saying. "I noticed that my posture was sort of hunched over, and that I wasn't good at taking compliments.
I came to terms with that through writing this record. Extraordinary is about stepping up to the plate and going, 'I'm not going to apologise for feeling great about myself,'" she added.
