When 2020 began, the last thing we ever expected was Lindsay Lohan‘s return to the music industry. It’s been nearly 15 years since her sophomore album, A Little More Personal, which was a deep look into her family hardships and difficulty with growing up in the spotlight. In her latest single, “Back to Me,” the 33-year-old is finally letting go of her controversial past.
As a popular child actress, Lohan struggled with critical Hollywood tabloids. It seemed like every move she made was judged harshly — a very tough fate for any rising star entering the early stages of adulthood. Since then, she has spent some time away from the public eye and finally reemerged at the beginning of the year, revealing in an interview with Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper that she was ready to start anew.

“Back to Me” pays homage to letting go of her dark past. The high-energy, dance-pop tune stays true to her previous music. We all remember the edginess of her hit “Rumors” — however, her 2020 resurgence is a more mature version.
“My life is full of ripped up pages // I’ve been weak, contagious // But I’m coming back, I’m coming back to me // Oh, but I know that everything changes,” Lohan sings, her signature raspy vocals taking us all the way back to her Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen days.
Lohan shared more about the track’s empowering meaning on her Twitter, saying, “The song is about rediscovering and accepting oneself, shutting out the noise and moving forward and letting the past go. Living in the now.”

The single is the Lohan we’ve come to know and love. As she powerfully chants the chorus, unafraid of what’s to come and tackling the future with confidence, we have no other choice than to stand by her side.
