Vivian Green says no more ‘sad’ songs

    Singer/songwriter Vivian Green is throwing in the towel when it comes to her sad, emotional ballads about love and heartbreak, and she’s moving on to something more grown and sexy.

    She released her latest album, The Green Room, late last year, and is currently promoting her single “Anything Out There,” which she says is a vastly different tone than anything she’s released in the past.

    “My first album was ‘I’m so sad’ and the second one was ‘I’m pissed.’ [The Green Room] is very grown and sexy, it doesn’t go in those negative places. I think growth is important, [and] it has a positive tone to it,” she told S2S.

    After almost a five-year hiatus from music, Vivian said she has grown into a much better singer than she was when she first wrote and recorded her hit “Emotional Rollercoaster” over 10 years ago.

    “When I sing it I can say I do enjoy singing it a lot still. I don’t sound exactly as I sounded when I was 20 when I recorded that,” she said.

    For those who will be looking for those tear-jerking ballads, Vivian said she recorded a couple on her latest album.

    “Those two songs are very dear to my heart, so I definitely opened up,” she said.

    The “Gotta Go, Gotta Leave” star plans to record a live album this year.

    “I’m excited about that. I’ve never done one, and a lot of people have probably never seen me live, [which is] one of my strengths. It’s something I want people to hear,” she said.
