Amidst the Chaos is the sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, released on April 5, 2019, through Epic Records. The lead single from the album, “Armor”, was released digitally on October 26, 2018. The album debuted at number six on the US Billboard 200.
In an interview with Forbes, Bareilles stated that the 2016 American Presidential Election was the catalyst for her beginning to write the album, with the title being a reference to the presidency of Donald Trump. The songs “No Such Thing” and “If I Can’t Have You” were written as odes to president Barack Obama, while “Armor” was written in response to the #MeToo Movement and released early in light of the confirmation hearing of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The duet with John Legend, “A Safe Place to Land”, was written about the immigrant family separation crisis along the US–Mexico border in 2018.
