Jay-Z has begun work on a new album, one that will follow hot on the heels of his forthcoming highly-anticipated collaboration with Kanye West.
That album, Watch The Throne, was supposed to be released last week, as the Guardian reports, with no sign of it yet appearing despite Jay-Z hosting a listening party in New York.
Nevertheless, Jay-Z has been throwing himself into his next LP, and while he may be only two songs into it he says, “I know exactly the tone and the whole feel,” before reassuring that “it’s different. It’s not weird.”
He added, “I think when you experience creativity, you should get it out as much as possible… I never had two songs this early, before my current project came out. They are really fucking good. I can tell you that.”
Jay-Z’s previous album came out in 2009, The Blueprint 3, which did moderately well critically and sold the inevitable millions. The new record will be his 12th solo effort.
As for the continuing saga of Watch The Throne, it may be a case of watch this space.
