In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, New Jersey songstress and "Love Galore" singer, SZA, casually unveiled that she's working on her new album with Tame Impala and Mark Ronson.
In the interview, SZA releases the info while discussing music inspirations, stating:
“People grapple with labeling me as hip-hop, R&B or pop, and it’s interesting to me. I’m just making music.
I listen to Stevie Nicks. I love classical jazz. I love folk. I love rap. I love Modest Mouse. I’m making an album with Tame Impala and Mark Ronson.
When you try to label it, you remove the option for it to be limitless. It diminishes the music.”
Many know Mark Ronson as the producer behind Bruno Mars' huge hit, "Uptown Funk." Australian psych rock outfit Tame Impala, however, is known for being a Grammy-nominated band, lead by Kevin Parker, who writes, records and produces the band's music.
After the huge success of her debut album CTRL, fans are excitedly awaiting a follow-up album from the First Lady of Top Dog Entertainment. With news of Ronson and Parker playing a role, we're convinced it'll be one of the stand out releases of next year.
