Jessica Simpson quotes on the album:

“I think that with my music, you can’t help but tell people a story about your life, I believe that every artist, that’s their artistry – it comes out of them naturally, through lyrics, through music, through instrumentation. So with this next record, you will see and hear a lot of things I’ve been going through. And if that can offer any inspiration to anybody else going through the same situations, so be it. That’s why I’m here.”

* About “Back To You”:

“It’s a ballad that reminds me of Janet, It’s a really raw, stripped, kind of naked song that’s just honest.”

“Living in the South for three months again felt really good,” Simpson said of shooting the film in Louisiana. “It brought a lot of my personality back that I was missing. I retreated back to Patsy Cline, and tried to go back there a little bit.”

“You’ll hear [the country], but you’ll also hear the fun club songs. Club songs and country songs; it’s all of it, mixed into one, just really good music.”

“I look at this new record from a different perspective than I had with all my other records because basically I’m doing the A&R work, I’m executive producing, I’m writing all the music – I’m doing it myself”.

“There are some fun dance tracks, and it’s probably more up-tempo than my last record. Music is supposed to make you smile and experience emotions. I don’t want to get caught up in the pressure of having the right single or having a smash hit. All I know is that every single song that comes out of me I want to hear on the radio. “

“I literally walk into the studio and hand him [Jimmy Jam] a CD of all my favorite songs that I want my album to sound like. It’s everything from Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline to Etta James. Jimmy got it from the very beginning.”
