27-year old YouTube sensation Lindsey Stirling is back with a brand new album!
The dubstep violinist, who was in the Philippines last year for a couple of shows, has released "Shatter Me," a more mature album from Lindsey musically and thematically.
MYXph.com got the opportunity to interview Lindsey via e-mail where she talked about her new album saying "I dug deeper to write this album and I wanted it to feel much more emotionally driven than my last album." According to her, her fans have told her that they can really feel the emotions in her tunes and that means a lot to Lindsey as an artist.
Lindsey revealed that at first, she was really scared to start with her new album. "I felt almost suffocated by the expectations built by my first album. There was a lot of pressure on me. But I prayed and sought for inspiration from God and I know that He helped give me the confidence and the peace of mind so I could share the talents that He has given me," she said.
Her carrier single "Shatter Me" is a story of a porcelain ballerina who lives inside a music box. "She's perfect and poised however when she begins to dance her perfect skin begins to crack. She is terrified because she wonders, 'If I break, will there be anything left of me with value?'. She decides to keep dancing causing her porcelain frame to shatter." Lindsey shared that in life, "Sometimes in order to free ourselves we have to break the person we've become in order to find the person we want to be."

As for her message to all her fans here in the Philippines, here's what Lindsey has to say:
"Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your support. I felt so warmly welcomed by you guys last time I came.

I cannot wait to come back!"
