The America’s Got Talent winner released her new album tonight, which includes 12 songs — nine that she personally wrote.

However, she says that writing it was actually kind of awkward.

“It was awkward,” Grace admits about writing her first album to TRL. “Just because I’ve never written an album before.”

She added that even going in the studio was kind of weird: “Just going into the studio and saying ‘Hi, nice to meet you. Let’s write a song’. But, I’m just glad I finally get to release it.”

Grace VanderWaal is back with another new song off her upcoming album called “City Song”.

“Growing up in New York, I always loved going to the city but was always disappointed because the city is busy and dirty,” the young songstress shared with Billboard.

Grace adds, “But songs out there made it seem very perfect and magical. Now at age 13, I learned that it’s not about the city itself, it’s about taking something and making it your own magical dream. That was the inspiration behind this song.”
