Hailee Steinfeld is still treating her debut album as a “work in progress”.

(Cover) - EN Showbiz - Hailee Steinfeld has been having “the time of my life” working on her upcoming debut album.

The 18-year-old actress, who recently showcased her vocal talents in comedy film Pitch Perfect 2, hit the Billboard charts with her debut single Love Myself in August.

Her first record will be following later this year, and Hailee says that working on the album has been an incredible experience.

“I’ve been in the studio the last six months or so, and it’s all still a work in progress, but I’ve been having the time of my life,” Hailee told MTV News. “Each song is very unique and different and has a sort of different sound, but obviously all fits under the same world.”

Love Myself is an infectious pop track which features a strong message of empowerment. And Hailee is thrilled to be able to share such a powerful story through her music.

“The song is about taking care of and indulging yourself, whether that being physically or emotionally or with material things, though it’s nice to have someone provide for you,” she said. “It’s nice to know that you can do it on your own. And that song represents how much power there is in being able to provide for yourself.”

While Hailee’s venture into music is a new move for her, she insists a singing career has always been “part of my plan”. And with a best friend in the form of worldwide legend Taylor Swift, Hailee certainly has the perfect person to turn to for advice in her new field.

Hailee also revealed in the interview that Taylor “seems to love” her music.
