Rowland added that the birth of her son made her realize what she wanted to focus on in music.
“I just found this place and found a groove and everything started to pop into place. I’m really excited,” she said. “I’m not in my 20s, but I’m not in my 50s. I’m in this really glorious time where I’m receiving a lot of information and I feel like I have to give that back out too. That’s more than enough to talk about. My theme is the extraordinary simple life of me. It’s a really colorful, beautiful record so far.”
