Minnie Driver's Ex Inspires Her New Album

Some may call it being unlucky in love, but for Minnie Driver, a failed relationship makes for good songwriting material. And that’s exactly the case for her second album, Seastories.

“Much of this album is about someone who I loved very much and still have a great, wonderful friendship with even though it didn’t work out,” Driver, 37, told PEOPLE after her performance at J&R Music and Computer World in New York City on Wednesday. “My music is always from my experiences.”
