“It’s like Shiny Toy Guns meets Rihanna, meets Kiley Minogue, meets Gwen Stefani, meets The Sounds. The music on this album is very pop. It’s a Studio 54, 1980s ‘throw back’ dance record. There are dance songs, songs with a more urban feel, moving ballads that groove and songs that are more rock.” —Krystal Meyers

“Thematically, there’s honesty, love and depth, along with some feel good dance songs. It’s a fun album!”—K.M.

“Dying for a Heart and this new record are very different. As I’m getting older, my influences are continuing to change. I don’t listen to as many hard bands as I used to. Granted, I still love to rock out, but I want to make records that reflect who I am at the time. This is a new season for me, but I’m still the same Krystal. I hope everyone loves the new sound.”—K.M.

“My favorite song so far on this record is “Beautiful Tonight” because the lyrics are very honest, the word imagery is very intricate and the message is not often addressed through music. There’s also a song I love called “Make Some Noise,” which really helped set the pace of the album from a musical standpoint. I’ve been able to perform “Make Some Noise” in Hong Kong, and ABC used it during promotions for its hit shows ‘Desperate Housewives,’ ‘Brothers and Sisters’ and ‘Extreme Home Makeover.’”—K.M.
