Camila Cabello found writing her new album a “cathartic” experience.
The 25-year-old star is set to release ‘Familia’ later this month, and Camila admits she loved the recording process.
The brunette beauty – who split from Shawn Mendes in 2021 – explained: “For me, my process is really cathartic.
“This is me singing whatever I think and feel into a microphone. I like seven takes of this. I do this for like 25 minutes and then me and my collaborators talk about it. Then we say to each other ‘Oh, you said that, that was really cool.’ We brainstorm, we fill it out and then it becomes a song.”
Camila has already played the album for some of her close friends and family.
And the chart-topping star – who rose to fame as part of Fifth Harmony – has been delighted with the feedback she has already received.
Speaking to ‘Entertainment Tonight’, Camila shared, “I feel like a lot of people have said to me, ‘This is different from your other albums. That he felt more grounded, more honest… there was no barrier of pressure, of anxiety, it was very unfiltered.
“Like that’s literally how I felt that day. And I think that comes through in the music.”
Camila also explained that she turned to meditation and therapy as a way to navigate the ups and downs of life.
She said: “As I get older, I find more and more resources, like meditation and talking to a therapist.
“Also talking to my friends, like literally saying, ‘Guys, I feel like this. And it’s fear, and I feel sad about it. Being really open with people, going for walks, I feel like that’s kind of the key to growing old.
“Those feelings are going to come and I think you’re gathering more and more tools to deal with them in a healthy way.”
