Stop what you're doing and get ready to have your day made. Mandy Moore, also known as pop's sweetest starlet from the bubblegum explosion of the late '90s, is working on some brand new music, and our inner middle school selves couldn't be any more excited. 

It all started when Buzzfeed posted an article about Miss Mandy's much-needed return to pop music, to which the missing-in-action songstress replied: "Ha! I'm working on it! 👯👯👯." 

Even though she's offered up vocals for Disney projects like 2010's Rapunzel, Mandy hasn't dropped an album in six years. However, it's not like she hasn't been working on her bread and butter in recent years either. Earlier this month, Mandy told Times Of India that next year will mark the return of her pop goodness. 

"I've been working on music steadily for the last couple of years. I guess 2016 will be the re-emergence of my music," she told the outlet. "That side of my life has been dormant for too long in my opinion."

In the meantime, grab your hairbrush, walkman and rediscover the magic that is her 1999 pop gem "Candy."
