Megan Hilty has revealed her life has been a "whirlwind" as she geared up for the release of her debut solo album.
The singer and actress has just wrapped her second season of the TV musical series Smash and also unveiled her record, It Happens All The Time, this week.
"It's been a whirlwind!" admitted the star.
The Broadway veteran said she wanted to do "something unexpected" with her album.
It Happens All The Time began as an album comprised solely of contemporary-pop covers. But Megan explained that Columbia started sending original songs along, and things started to evolve. The result is a collection of wide-ranging genres: modern soul, 70s pop and contemporary alternative.
Megan, 31, went on: "I guess it is a break-up album, but not a cry-your-eyes-out kind of album. That's why we went with It Happens All The Time as the title. People fall in and out of love all the time."
