If you were missing Mandy Moore's music, there's good news! The "This Is Us" star is finally getting back to her singing roots.

The Emmy-nominated actress has released her first new music in 10 years: the self-reflective single “When I Wasn’t Watching."

The song is set to appear on Moore’s forthcoming album, due out early next year.

"The idea of diving back into music after so much time and personal change was really intimidating to me for a while," Moore 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."

As for what the song is about, Moore said it’s about the universal experience of “feeling lost and not quite understanding how you’ve found yourself at a certain point in your life."

"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," she added.

Moore began working on her new album, the follow-up to 2009’s "Amanda Leigh," earlier this year, with her husband, musician Taylor Goldsmith, among the collaborators.

She recorded each song live with a full band and says she aimed to make a “very California-sounding record – something that feels sunshiny and airy and natural."

"I very much feel like I'm at the helm of the ship now, where I'm stepping back into music completely on my own terms," she said. "Everything that's happened up until this point has gotten me to where I am today, and I'm so excited to just keep moving forward."
