The actress claims that recording her new album has had a therapeutic effect on her, but also admits that listening to a song ‘If You Say So’, which is about Cory, who died of an overdose last year, is not easy for her.

She told Billboard: ”It has both sides of the spectrum. Listening to it, it’s therapeutic and difficult. It will always represent the most devastating thing that’s ever happened to me in my whole life. But at the same time, music is therapy. It has been therapy for me in the entire grieving process and in my entire life.”

Lea is now on the path of recovery and says that another track on her album, ‘Cannonball’, is all about finding strength.

The new album will be released on March 17.

”This record is such a strong representation of what the last two years of my life were like and I don’t know what’s next for me in my life,” Lea added.
