Alana Springsteen says she is "trusting myself more than ever" in 'Twenty Something"

    "This past year, two years, I've found my fans and I've found this confidence in myself and my music and I am trusting myself more than I ever have and 'Amen' is a representation of that", Alana explained.

    Alana Springsteen has revealed the concluding segment of her debut album trilogy, TWENTY SOMETHING, completing the journey with Getting It Right.

    Comprising Messing It Up, Figuring It Out, and now Getting It Right, this three-part project encapsulates Springsteen's evolution as she grapples with crucial life insights during the tumultuous yet remarkable period of her TWENTY SOMETHING years. Across these heartfelt tracks, she candidly explores uncertainties and heartaches, ultimately emerging stronger and embracing a newfound self-assurance.

    In an interview with CountryLine Alana shared upon release her happiness at being able to let this project out into the world after working on it for a year and a half.

    "It's wild that it's come up so fast and this is the combination of everything", Alana said. When asked about the name of the final part of the trilogy, 'Getting It Right', Springsteen replied:

    "I like to think I am getting a lot right, I am definitely that happiest I have ever been and coming out of the 'History of Breaking Up' era, I feel like a lot of us know about that (failed relationships) as I have written so much about it.

    "But I think coming back into this new era I looked back on those relationships and I had to take a little bit of ownership, those relationships ended as I was looking for validation and I truly wasn't loving myself the way that I needed to.

    The most recent release reflects how positive turn in her life after being able to tour with people Alana named as her heroes like Luke Bryan and said it was "a dream come true".

    Earlier this Summer, Alana also had another first in her career after playing Nissan Stadium at CMA Fest and explained "just having that moment with so many country music fans in the audience was the most beautiful thing in the world".

    Like many artists, whilst it may look like Alana is an overnight success and uses Jelly Roll as an example, she explains "whilst it looks that way, he's been at it for a long time.

    "I've been in Nashville since I was 14, I've know since I was 9/10 years old that this is what I wanted to do and it just takes a while to really come into your own and find your voice.

    "This past year, two years, I've found my fans and I've found this confidence in myself and my music and I am trusting myself more than I ever have and 'Amen' is a representation of that.

    "That song is a promise to myself and to always be 100% honest and stay true to me and live on my terms, empowering myself to do that."
