“I started losing faith and not only for our country, but for the people that voted for him,” Sheryl said via Page Six. “The whole album is very informed by the atmosphere, which is very chaotic, very vitriolic, a lot of fear that was really in the ether while we were making this record.”

Last year, Sheryl joined tons of other artists to tell politicians to stop using their music without their approval.

Sheryl
went on to say that during the election, she tried to shield her sons – Wyatt, 9, and Levi, 6 – from TV and social medias from seeing all of negativity that was being put out there in the media.

“I felt like it was becoming so hateful that I had to watch to make sure my kids didn’t pick up the remote and turn the TV on,” Sheryl said. “We want a healthy future that is secure. And we have to figure out a way to communicate with reason and a modicum of decorum at least.”

Sheryl‘s new album Be Myself is set to be released on April 21.
