“I have hundred of songs recorded for this album,” Cassie says in disbelief, driving through the hills of L.A. “I’ve been working on it for a long time. Finally, I had to decide my direction. I felt kind of exposed when I stopped working in the studio. My friends would call me to hang out and I would say, ‘nope, going in the studio,’ and they’d say, ‘you’ve been in the studio for four years!'”
The record itself maintains the dark and sultry elements of her early material but it merges it with electronic dance, jungle, reggae, and even ska. “It’s the perfect definition of who I am right now and what I’m going through,” she says, smiling. “People aren’t going to expect me to come out with what I have.”
Guess we’ll have to wait and see. When is this jawn coming out anyway???
