Jennifer is back stateside after flming the lead role in the forthcoming Winnie Mandela biopic Winnie in South Africa. But the busy double threat still found time to work on her new album at the same time.

“I woke up one morning and I just started writing,” she say. “The song is about how in my 28 years, I feel like I have led four or five different lives, and the only way I know how to identify me at this point is that I have the same eyes, the same hands and the same feet.
