The singer-songwriter talks to the Pop Shop Podcast about getting "emotionally & physically" over a relationship on her new single "Kissing Other People."
Last month, Lennon Stella gave her fans a mini-heart attack when she started a tweet with: "also thought you should know I am very pregnant." For those who stopped reading after those nine words ("Yeah, there was a lot of people that thought I was actually pregnant," Stella laughed to Billboard in a new interview with the Pop Shop Podcast; listen below), the rest of the tweet reads: "...with an album baby and i'm about to pop. ... three…two...one here we go 2020."
The 20-year-old singer/songwriter -- who has been in the public eye since her 2012 debut on the ABC series Nashville and as part of a viral-video duo with her sister in Lennon & Maisy -- is finally ready to release her debut album next year and formally introduce herself as an adult solo star. Over the past few months, she's been super busy on the road with The Chainsmokers and 5 Seconds of Summer, but once that wraps up, she's focusing entirely on the album.
"Before this tour started, I spent a couple of months in LA just diving in and working a bunch on it," she tells Billboard's Pop Shop Podcast. "It's very close to being done, which is very crazy to think about because right now, it feels so scattered in my head. Like, it's kind of all over the place. But it's ... on its way to being finished. And I'm just really excited to have a full album out in the world, and I think when it's an album ... I feel more creative or inspired to be a little more experimental because it just feels like a little bit less pressure on each song."
