Olivia Rodrigo tries to write a song every day to stop herself getting depressed

Olivia Rodrigo is trying to write a song every day to keep her mental health in check.

The 20-year-old singer, who released her second album ‘GUTS’ in September, also admitted the process of writing the record tested her confidence and patience.

She told Variety: “These days, I try to write one song every day. I just feel like myself when I’m writing.

“If I don’t do it, I get depressed. I’m just writing songs to process what’s going on, whether in my personal life or in my perception of the world.”

Olivia added about how she struggled with the writing of ‘GUTS’: “The experience tested my confidence and patience. It taught me some important lessons about songwriting in terms of focusing on your craft rather than just waiting for inspiration to strike.

“It taught me about the mindset that is most conducive to writing: You can never sit down at the piano and try to write something that everyone will like; that always results in a really bad song.

“It taught me that I write songs that I want to hear.”

Olivia also told how she wrote her recent single ‘Can’t Catch Me Now’ for the new ‘Hunger Games’ prequel film – ‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’ – saying: “I watched the film first and then wrote the song. It was a really interesting challenge for me to write something from the perspective of a character in a movie because I feel like I’m very direct in my songwriting; I write about what’s going on in my life.

“Even though I tore through the books as a kid, I didn’t watch the films until this year.”
