Mandy Moore Going ’70s Pop With ‘Coverage’
January 29, 2003 – Liz Smith of the New York Post seems to have a warm spot for Mandy. She says Mandy is working on her third album and recording in a garage with a live band. This effort, titled ‘Coverage,’ will showcase the singer’s version of ’70s pop classics by Todd Rundgren, Cat Stevens, Elton John, Joan Armatrading and others. Mandy thinks her techno/hip-hop generation needs a classic infusion from the past, and is pursuing the project with producer John Fields without the financial backing from her Sony label. With her first two albums going multi-platinum, Mandy is taking a risk, but has the fan base to make it work.
