The new album is the fifth solo effort for Mann, who rose to popularity fronting the band Til Tuesday. While it has a straightforward rock feel that some of her music has lacked, Mann wrote the songs on piano, something she'd never done.

In addition to that new skill, the title of The Forgotten Arm refers to another new pursuit of Mann's: boxing.
