Two years ago, Mandy Moore made a big return to music with Silver Landings, a Laurel Canyon-soaked send-off to classic folk/rock music (think: Linda Ronstadt in her early days). Now, the This is Us star has released “In Real Life.” Orchestral strings swarm in nose-dive patterns, stitched and sweeping, while her voice glues its genre-melting frame together. “When I saw your face, I knew right away we’d be whoever we wanted to be,” she muses on love, the life-changing variety. “In real life, somebody loves me.”
