ROLLINGSTONE.COM: Mandy Moore has returned to pop with her first new song in a decade, “When I Wasn’t Watching.” The single is the first off a forthcoming full-length album.
Produced by Mike Viola (Jenny Lewis, Andrew McMahon), Moore channels Seventies California pop for the breezy, refreshing new song. In the video, Moore appears alone, performing the song through a series of gorgeous vignettes, including a pool and sepia-toned room.
In a statement, Moore revealed the inspiration for the song. “I think everyone’s had the experience of feeling lost and not quite understanding how you’ve found yourself at a certain point in your life. And I think the key is not to judge yourself for that. I’m a big believer in the idea that what you’ve journeyed through is ultimately going to factor into the person you become, and how you’ll greet whatever big challenge you face next.”
Moore hasn’t revealed further details on what will be her first album since 2009’s Amanda Leigh. Since then, Moore’s music has been mostly tied to soundtracks for her acting projects, including 2010’s Tangled and her hit show This Is Us, for which she covered Linda Ronstad’s “Willin’” in 2017.
“The idea of diving back into music after so much time and personal change was really intimidating to me for a while,” she said in a statement. “But then I finally realized: I’m the only person who can make this move. It all has to start with me.”
This Is Us will return for its fourth season later this month. She will also appear in the action film Midway alongside Nick Jonas, Woody Harrelson and Dennis Quaid later this year.
BILLBOARD.COM: Mandy Moore leads an all-star cast in the gripping trailer for the WWII drama Midway that dropped Thursday morning (Sept. 12). In the two-and-a-half-minute preview of the Roland Emmerich-directed film, due out on Veteran’s Day weekend (Nov. 8), the singer and This Is Us star portrays Anne Best, wife of Lt. Dick Best, played by British actor Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones, Deadpool).
The movie is based on the real events following the surprise Dec. 1, 1941, bombing of Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, by the Japanese Navy, which led to the U.S. entering the war the next day. With a sense of the tension and angst leading up to the epic June 1942 showdown in the air and sea over the Midway Atoll, the clip provides brief glimpses of the star-packed cast, which includes scenes of a mustachioed Nick Jonas as aviation machinist Bruno Gaido, as well as stars Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans, Aaron Eckhart, Woody Harrelson and Dennis Quaid.
The cast for the film from legendarily bombtastic director/producer Emmerich (Independence Day, White House Down and Godzilla), also includes Darren Criss, Jake Weber (Homeland), Brennan Brown (Chicago Med), Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games), Tadanobu Sato (47 Ronin), Keean Johnson (Alita: Battle Angel), Jun Kunimura (Kill Bill: Volume 1) and many more.
Midway is one of the biggest live-action, big-budget starring movie roles for Moore, who has been nominated for a Golden Globe and Emmy for her role as Rebecca Pearson on the NBC drama This Is Us and who revealed in June that she’s working on her first new album in a decade with the aid of husband Dawes singer/guitarist Taylor Goldsmith.
Watch the Midway trailer below.
Last month, Mandy attended a Rothy’s Conscious Cocktails event at a private residence in Los Angeles. She looked beautiful in black and white as she joined people including Isla Fisher.

POPCULTURE.COM: The trailer for This is Us Season 4 is here, and fans are more excited than ever for the drama’s return. The new footage includes shots of Milo Ventimiglia returning as young Jack, tugging on fans’ heartstrings ahead of the fall TV season premiere.
This is Us Season 4 is less than a month away, and now fans have a new sneak peek to geek out over. NBC released the new trailer on Saturday morning, the birthday of “the Big 3” in the series. The minute-long trailer finds Jack and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) having a serious flashback discussion in the car.
“It’s so strange, isn’t it? How just like that a completely stranger can become a big part of your story,” she says, as the trailer drifts off into other disparate shots from both timelines. “It’s actually kind of terrifying, you know? How a single cross with one person who you’ve never met can change everything.”
The trailer introduces some of the new faces joining the cast this season, notably M. Night Shyamalan, Jennifer Morrison and Omar Epps. So far, there are no details on the new characters these actors will play, nor how they will factor into the main story. Given the lines from Rebecca playing over the trailer, it sounds like each of them will have some kind of butterfly effect on the Pearson family, entangled with their past, present or both.
Fans are desperate for more information on This Is Us, and the cast seems just as excited. Earlier this month, the ensemble gave a group interview with Entertainment Tonight over breakfast, discussing how the next season will expand the world of the show even further.
“Our first episode, our universe fundamentally expands in a way that people might not be expecting,” Moore said.
“Some new characters being introduced, some new relationships are going to be evolving,” added Justin Hartley, who plays Kevin Pearson.
The interview also included series creator Dan Fogelman, who said that the season premiere was “potentially polarizing” for the show’s die-hard fan base.
“In the series, we have what I call little markers, little stakes we put in the ground of these episodes that serve as grounding points for the whole arc and the whole series,” he warned. “Our first two episodes of this season are two of those and it’s a big, bold, potentially polarizing — but in the best possible way — start to the season.”
This Is Us is one of TV’s most compelling dramas, as it plays with time and relationships in bold, non-linear ways. Love for the show reached a fever pitch at the end of Season 3, and it sounds like the cast and crew are continuing to take risks going forward.
This Is Us Season 4 premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
I’m working on getting Mandy’s film and TV projects as up to date as I can before the new season of This Is Us premieres. I’ve added captures from one of my favorite Mandy films – Because I Said So – to the gallery.
