Mandy Moore is officially back in music. The This Is Us actress and former pop singer released a new track “When I Wasn’t Watching” last night at midnight, along with an artsy music video for it. The song is upbeat but lyrically, is a deep exploration into discovering who you are after hardship.

Moore teased on her Instagram Story last night that her single, “it’s just the first little taste” of the music to come. She said to “stay tuned” when asked whether she’d be going on tour.

And yes, an album is coming. When Moore was asked what she’d like to accomplish by the end of the year, she said, “I don’t know, maybe finishing my record and maybe having some of the projects that are currently in development at my production company maybe those moving forward and coming to fruition.” She captioned the video, “Not maybe. Definitely.”

For now, take in Moore’s first song and music video below, along with the lyrics, via Genius.

Verse 1

Where was I when this was going down?

Maybe sleeping in, maybe outta town?

I spent my whole life waiting patiently

Convinced it all would come to me

My favorite version of me disappeared

Through longer days and shorter years

So where was I when this was going down?

Assumed the world would come around

Chorus

To who we are

When no one is looking

When nobody’s looking

What I became

When I wasn’t watching

When I wasn’t watching

Verse 2

A little lost, a little rough

I asked myself, “Have you had enough?”

How do I start to retrace the steps

I haven’t even taken yet

The fear of what I’m facing in the mirror

Stops me cold and leaves me here

A little lost, a little rough

The lack of answers all led up

Chorus

To who we are

When no one is looking

Nobody’s looking

What I became

When I wasn’t watching

When I wasn’t watching

Chorus

Who we are

Nobody’s looking

Nobody’s looking

What I became

When I wasn’t watching

When I wasn’t watching

When I wasn’t watching

When I wasn’t watching
