Meghan Trainor's latest album Timeless marks a significant milestone in her career. A pop sensation. The album, released on June 7, 2024, is a testament to her growth as both an artist and mother. It reflects themes of self-love, empowerment, and family values. Trainor's personal life particularly her experiences as the mother of two young children, played a significant role in shaping the album's creative direction.

In an interview with Apple Music, Trainor revealed that her children inspired her to be the best version of herself. She emphasized the importance of self-love and confidence. Stating "Babies bring inspiration they make me want to be the best human being I can try to be." This sentiment is reflected throughout the album. It aims to teach self-love and confidence to both her children and listeners.

The album's title "Timeless," is a nod to Trainor's fear of death and her desire to be present for her children. She has spoken openly about her experiences as mother. Including the challenges of balancing her career and family life. Trainor has also been open about her mental health and states that she takes antidepressants and sees a therapist regularly to maintain her well-being.

Musically Timeless blends Trainor's signature pop sound with new elements such as vintage influences and collaborations with other artists. The album features a range of tracks. From the upbeat "Been Like This" to the more contemplative "To the Moon," the latter is dedicated to Trainor's youngest son, Barry Bruce Trainor. The album also includes "I Wanna Thank Me," which samples Niecy Nash-Betts' Emmy Awards acceptance speech and features Nash, her daughter, and her wife on backing vocals.

Throughout the album Trainor's focus on self-love and empowerment is evident. She has spoken about the importance of these themes in her music. "I have my self-love pop bangers that I just do in my sleep. That's my therapy that I need for myself it also helps people. So that's just a win-win as a songwriter."
