SZA has half-joked that she’s considered scrapping her new album and “starting from scratch”.
The singer hosted a new livestreamed event called IN BLOOM in collaboration with Grey Goose this week, and promised that she would debut new music during the event.
“I feel like IN BLOOM really captures where I’m at right now, especially after a year and a half of lockdown, which is also why it feels like the best place to debut some of my new material,” she said in a statement prior to the event.
At the show, new music did indeed arrive in the shape of a snippet of new track ‘Shirt’, before SZA gave more details about her forthcoming second album in an interview post-show.
As Women’s Wear Daily report, the singer was asked about progress on her new album. Half-joking, she responded: “I’m actually probably about to scrap all of it and start from scratch.
“I think they’ll be surprised to know that it’s not what they thought, and it’s not coming when they thought,” she added. “I hope that they’ll be pleasantly surprised.”
