Singer and actress Mandy Moore is relieved she's signed with Warner BROS after hinting at a poor relationship with her former record executives at EPIC.

The CANDY hitmaker's four-album deal with Sony's Epic label ended last year (03) with the disc COVERAGE, and Moore is looking forward to her new working partnership with Warner imprint SIRE.

Moore, 20, enthuses, "I am beyond elated to get into the studio. Blank slate. No baggage. No history with anyone. Perfect.

"I have been writing quite a bit lately and hoping to hook up and collaborate with some great songwriters. If all goes according to plan, I'm anticipating the record to be completed by this fall and ready to be released early next year."
