Jessie J has opened up about plans for her new album.
Speaking at the launch of her new campaign with Propel Electrolyte Water, Jessie talked about the album and working with producer DJ Camper.
Describing her latest work as very “honest” and “grown”, Jessie revealed she is only just letting those closest to her know she’s back in the studio.
“I’ve recently let my friends know that I’m working on new music.” the ‘Bang Bang’ singer tells Billboard.
“It’s been a very incredible process for me in the last two years. With this next lot of music, I’m very much going back to my roots like on my first album (2011’s Who You Are), which was very honest.”
“I needed to go back to where it all began; to take a break in a good, positive way.”
“From the ages 25-30, you learn so much and grow as a person. You become who you’re going to be for a long time. I’ve also enjoyed the process of just getting back to songwriting on my own. Where I’m at with the new music, everything written thus far I’ve written by myself.”
“I’m really proud of it. It doesn’t reflect anything I’ve ever done before, which is exciting.”
Discussing the albums musical style and direction Jessie says “it’s an album musically that I’ve wanted to make for a long time and had to find the right time.”
“Everyone who’s heard the album so far says it’s very honest and very grown. I’m speaking on issues that a 29-year-old goes through which is different from what I’ve sung about in the past. But I have to be true to what’s in my mind and heart.”
And when it comes to working with producer DJ Camper, Jessie only had positive things to say.
“He’s incredible, actually insane. I met him through a friend. He’s the most incredible pianist and comes from church.”
“He’s inspired me more than I ever thought I could be inspired. I’m so happy I found an amazing friend as well as a producer in the process. It’s been a really beautiful experience for both of us.”
“I’m working with one producer, on this cohesive piece of work. It’s a piece of music as opposed to singles and album fillers. I feel like I’m making music. I don’t know when it will be out. I’m just enjoying the process that everything happens for a reason, trusting in time and feelings.”
Jessie has teamed up with Propel Electrolyte Water to create a custom song that hopes to inspire and motivate people to get active.
