In a new interview with Gwen from last night’s Harajuku Lovers launch party with Chasing Fireflies, she spoke excitedly about the progress she’s making on her new album and admits she’s making it more for herself.
Gwen shared that she’s been working in the studio for the past two days and has called her new songs magic. She seems ecstatic about her upcoming record and teased us but saying she has about 18 songs written. “You don’t understand right now how I excited I am. It doesn’t get more exciting!”
She went on to talk about her inspirations for the album and calls is a blessing. “New Music — music period — being on The Voice, and being around all that music, sharing everybody’s stories, thinking back at what I’ve done — it’s just been magical. And I know that it has a lot to do with my record. When I took the job [The Voice], I just got so much out of it in a spiritual way that I never thought I would.”
When asked what we’ll be hearing from her on the new album, Gwen shared that she only had three hours of sleep the previous night and has been woking in the studio non-stop. “The thing is that, this album is literally for me.” She seems at a loss of words when trying to describe what’s going through her head and says that she’s still trying to “digest” all of her new material since it’s so fresh. “I’ve never written like this before. I started writing at the end of June. I have probably 18 songs. Every single time I’ve been in the studio, I’ve written a song. It’s the biggest, most incredible, unexpected blessing. Music is awesome! Like insane magic.”
Gwen told People that she has “nothing to hide” on this next album and the article states that we should expect something “honest and truthful” from her.
And in case you missed it, in a recent interview with Yahoo, Gwen said that a new single is on the way “soonish” and says that she has a few in mind that she would like to release first. She also discussed what she’s been working on in length and says that she’s not able to reveal whom she has been collaborating with just quite yet.
