Well, it’s not as if we ever thought pop superstar Ke$ha was humble. She hopes, with splendid fame and flair, that her sophomore album will reinvent pop music. Whoa.
Her new album is to be titled ‘Spandex on the Distant Horizon,” and is tentatively scheduled for release May 2012.
“Spandex on the Distant Horizon” will be the follow-up to 2010’s “Animal” which featured her breakout single “Tik Tok.” But Ke$ha wants to move away from the overt pop-dance tracks, and bring forward a more introspective side to her sound. She flirted with the style on previous songs such as “Blind” and “Dancing with Tears in My Eyes” but both had strong dance slants.
When asked about the new albums direction she had this to say:
I think that my first record is, like, very brash and very sassy and very unapologetic and irreverent. And I love that. I’m really proud of that, but I have learned over the past three years of doing this that being vulnerable doesn’t mean you’re weak.
So on my next record, you are going to hear probably a little more of that. I’m not going to make an acoustic, sad entire record. But you might hear a little bit more vulnerability on the next record
Of course, changing style is one thing, but reinventing the musical climate is another. When asked about the goals Ke$ha responded, um, modestly:
Ke$ha is currently recording, and the sophomore record is slated for a release May 2012. Expect album details and a lead single shortly.
