With her sophomore album, Danielle Bradbery wants fans to get to know the real person behind those flawless vocals that earned her the winner’s trophy on NBC’s The Voice in 2013.

“I’ve been waiting for these moments to reintroduce myself. I’ve been introducing myself as because I was 16 when I won The Voice and now I’m 21 so there’s a lot that I had to figure out as a person and an artist and a songwriter so it’s been really fun,” Bradbery says.

Bradbery’s sophomore effort, I Don’t Believe We’ve Met, releases Dec. 1 via BMLG Records. The title is appropriate, as Bradbery offers listeners her own perspective on the issues that matter to her, both as a person and as an artist. Bradbery co-wrote seven of the album’s 10 tracks, marking her first time co-writing.

“It was a whole new thing for sure,” she says of the writing process. “I had to ease my way into it, just going from not writing to now writing, it’s a huge difference. I didn’t realize it could open so many doors. On the first album I was on the outer shell of the songs, I didn’t really feel like I was 100 percent connected. Now I feel like I’m one with the songs. That’s a really surreal feeling.”

As the album’s release date draws near, Bradbery has given fans a taste of the project, releasing instant-grat tracks “Hello Summer” and “Human Diary.” During her visit to the MusicRow offices, Bradbery performed two new songs she co-wrote on the project, including light-hearted, dance-ready “Sway” and uplifting, introspective album cut “Worth It.”

Thomas Rhett, who shares the same manager with Bradbery, co-wrote two tracks on the album, including “What Are We Doing” and “Hello Summer.”

“I see him as a big brother and he’s taken me under his wing by allowing me to be on the song “Playing With Fire,” which is amazing. He has given me so much amazing advice on how to perform and be myself and just watching him onstage is advice enough.”

“My goal with this album was to be as honest and real as I could. I love talking about real situations. Hopefully my fans and a lot of people will relate. Personally when I hear an artist hat sings a heartfelt song, I love that feeling and I want it to be that. I’m crossing my fingers that I come across that way.”
