This New Music Friday (August 27) is one for the books. Not only are fans *still* awaiting the release of Donda as Kanye West takes over Soldier Field in Chicago, but Belly has also dropped an applause-worthy album with the release of See You Next Wednesday. The Canadian-bred star has call on a few chart-topping friends to help him make this one a megahit, and he recently caught up with NME about his record-shaping process.
“This album was me really trying to find my footing again and trying to be comfortable making music. I was drifting away from music and had been for a long time. I needed to unlearn a few things and try making music again,” he said. “At a point I just had no emotional currency left. I had to get myself together to be able to even get stuff out,.”
“I wanted to make it cohesive; I didn’t want it to sound like a collection of songs. I took my time, and that was probably the first time I’ve ever done that in my life. Instead of just being like, ‘Oh, we’ve got enough. Let’s roll,’ this time I was meticulous about everything.”
