The 28-year-old singer-songwriter broke the news on Wednesday (June 22) via Instagram that the album will be released on October 21, marking her fourth full-length project since 2020’s Treat Myself, not counting the album’s Christmas record. last year, A Very Trainor Christmas, or the 2021 reissue of his EP The Love Train with three bonus tracks. Captioning a photo of the upcoming LP’s brightly colored cover, which shows the artist lounging in a floral suit atop a spiral staircase graphic design, he simply wrote: “New album TAKIN’ IT BACK Oct 21st!”

Takin’ It Back was announced simultaneously in an interview with Rolling Stone, in which the Grammy winner revealed that the new record will feel like a return to form from her groundbreaking debut album, Title. “It’s like Title 2.0,” Trainor told the publication. “It’s my old school. It’s true to myself in all the weird genres I go to, but also modern with my doo-wop in there.”

“The lyrics are stronger than ever, and it’s still a party,” he added.

The new album will be Trainor’s first since welcoming her first child, Riley, with Spy Kids actor Daryl Sabara, and many of its songs will explore her journey of motherhood and love for her husband. Also on the set list are collaborations with Arturo Sandoval, Natti Natasha and Teddy Swims, as well as songs about learning to feel good about her body again after all the scars and physical changes she experienced after her pregnancy and C-section.

“I feel like my songwriting is so much better since I had a C-section,” she joked in the interview.
