Selena Gomez’s follow up album to her debut “Kiss & Tell” is set to have a Britney Spears vibe and Selena is very excited for her fans to hear it and let her know what they think of it! In a recent interview Selena said about the upcoming CD:
“I think what we really want to do with this record is musically more mature and with my whole sound and vibe and what I want to become as a musician. I think this is the first step to that. So it’s very techno, it’s very like old-schooled Britney stuff that I love.”
Following a similar path, Miley Cyrus’ latest single, “Can’t Be Tamed” shares the early Britney Spears inspiration. It should be interesting to see how Selena captures the same concept!
Selena Gomez on her upcoming sophomore album:
Were you nervous about taking the leap from actress to singer? Of course! That’s why it took me a while to get into the music scene. It was very nerve-wracking but I’m in a very good place and I’ve worked really hard on my album. Why did you decide to go down the band route instead of launching as a solo artist? I just really didn’t want to be a solo artist. Originally I wanted the project to be called ‘The Scene’, but obviously that would be confusing for my younger audience who know me because of the show and my name, so we decided to use both. I think it’s worked out well.
What’s up with the follow up album? I’m working on it at the moment and hopefully we’ll get it out this year. I’m really enjoying my music, and I’m much more comfortable with it now, so I’m really excited for people to hear the stuff I’m working on. Will you be co-writing more on the sophomore album? I’m trying to do my second album while shooting my movie, so I don’t know if I’ll have time to be in the studio as much as I want. Eventually I’d like to get to a place where it’s just my band and myself writing together, because that’s what I really love, but at the moment I’m having fun singing songs by some really talented writers. Why not enjoy the people who really know what they’re doing as opposed to me?!

The Maine who are all currently in California, have been recording their sophomore album in Los Angeles recently. The band put together an update video of their first few experiences in the studio which you can watch below. Are you excited for their new music?
Katy Perry is ready to change up her sound for her follow up to ‘One Of The Boys’ with her sophomore album releasing later on this year. The ‘Hot N Cold’ singer dished on how she tries to find her own niche in the music scene, and what to expect to hear in 2010.
“You’ve got Lady Gaga, who’s like, from outer space; you’ve got Ke$ha, who’s the beer-drinking, house-party girl; and then you’ve got Rihanna, who’s transforming the urban world into her own outer space,” she explains. “But I feel like you’re missing an Alanis Morissette, 2010. I love how she was a voice for a lot of people who couldn’t explain their feelings. But it’s not like I’m not gonna compete. I love a good dose of healthy competition. It’s not going to be the same thing that they’re doing.”
“Some of the kid mess I’ve grown out of completely,” Perry announces. “I feel like when I explain my transition visually, people understand. I’m taking it out of the Shirley Temple, Betty Boop, Lichtenstein kind of thing. It’s still fun, but it’s a bit darker. It’s not as annoying. Sometimes I feel like a big strawberry with a face on it. If you do something over and over again it’s like Chinese water torture. If it hits your head enough times, you want to die. You have to just evolve.”
Part of Katy’s evolution will include her new album which she describes as “a roller-disco ‘Lovefool’ by the Cardigans meets ‘I Saw the Sign’ by Ace of Base.”
“I think what will be most important is not the club bangers, but the songs that people want to put on the inside of their wedding rings-that lyrics, that inscription they want to use as their lifelong motto.”
Katy Perry’s album is set to be released summer 2010.
While mostly known for their work with hip-hop and R&B acts, hitmaking duo Tricky Stewart and The-Dream are branching out into pop/rock territory with Katy Perry’s sophomore album, the follow-up to 2008’s One of the Boys.
How far along are you on Katy Perry’s album?
Right now we’re at the very beginning stages. I’m the first producer that she’s gone in with. There’s gonna be two other producers on the album. We feel really great about the stuff that we’re creating so far. We’ve been just writing and writing and writing, so we have really, really good stuff, but we don’t know what stuff is going on the album yet.
What direction is she headed in?
We haven’t really locked in on the songs or even the direction for that matter. We’re trying to write great songs, just really making sure that we have real interesting records that are smashes.
Will the album have an urban sound at all?
She’s doing what she did the last time. It’s pop/rock. It’s a different gear for me. This is a very important project for me ’cause people are waiting to see what I’m gonna do.
What is she like to work with?
Katy’s very, very cool. She reminds me of the type of people that I hang out with in my everyday life. She’s a very fun person to be around. Her energy is great, her spirit is great. We’ve spent a lot of time together in a short period, so I would definitely consider her to be a friend at this point.
What have your studio sessions been like so far?
We’re putting it in. We’re there from 1 p.m. to 5 a.m. That’s pretty much the schedule that I keep in the studio with all the artists that I work with. If they’re not ready to go hard, they don’t usually go in with me.
