Sara Bareilles says new album will express “the way it feels to be alive right now”

Epic RecordsSara Bareilles announced last week that her new album, Amidst the Chaos, will be coming in April. She tells ABC Radio that fans can expect the album to explore some large cultural themes in an intimate way.

“I'm not quiet about my feelings about sort of contextualizing my art against the political environment and what's going on culturally,” she says. “And so I really wanted to have a place to channel some of those feelings and what I found is that I needed to express kind of intimately the way it feels to be alive right now.”

The lead single off the album, the female empowerment anthem “Armor,” was the perfect jumping off point for those themes.

“The themes that were cropping up were much larger themes and so wanting to speak to the new feminist movement and how proud I am to be a part of that, that's where ‘Armor’ came from,” she explains. “And I started writing that the day after I got back from the Women's March last year, or two years ago now.” 

Amidst the Chaos, which also features the new single “Fire,” is available for pre-order now and comes out April 5.

“I’m pregnant”: Fans freak out as Shawn Mendes takes it off for Calvin Klein campaign

ABC/Lou RoccoA young Canadian singer-songwriter who was discovered online, and starred in a Calvin Klein underwear campaign -- that description was true of Justin Bieber in 2015, and now it's true of Shawn Mendes, too.

Shawn unveiled two pictures from his upcoming Calvin Klein underwear campaign on Instagram.  One shows him posting in a kitchen wearing nothing but a pair of white boxer briefs.  The other shows him relaxing in an armchair wearing nothing but a pair of black boxer briefs. 

"@CalvinKlein #MyCalvins. Campaign coming this week," he captioned the sexy pics.

To say fans approved would be an understatement.

"And just like that...I'm pregnant," commented one. 

"Someone call the ambulance, my pure heart has been tainted," wrote another.

"What the hell, Mendes?? You can't be SO hot. If you are that hot, I will die because of the lethal dose of sex appeal," added another.

"Yum," "Zaddy," "Oh my lord hello" and "Oh sweet Jesus" were among the other comments.
