Justin Bieber Dishes on Next Album + Self-Producing
Ready for a new Justin Bieber album? Well, don't jump out of your chair just yet. MTV News caught up with the 'Baby' hitmaker, and he revealed that while he's planning to come hard with his new record, he's still in the process of creating it.
Though the 17-year-old music mogul didn't offer up any spillage in terms of a release date, or even time period, he did leak some info about the type of vibe his new tunes will give off. "I've done a lot on my acoustic guitar, so it's gonna have that vibe," the Biebs explains.
Of course, it's only been a year since he laid 'My World 2.0' on us, and just a few months since 'Never Say Never – The Remixes' came out; but whenever a new album is ready, we're ready to take it.
But if Lil Wayne -- who recently dropped an acoustic love song of his own -- won't collaborate with the teen idol on some new tracks, who will? Bieber says he will work with the best person he can think of: himself. "I want to work a lot with myself," he admits. "And [I want to] write a lot myself. I will be working with a lot of other producers and stuff like that, but I'm just writing a lot, writing on tour."
Since he's all in love with Selena Gomez and stuff, it's likely Bieber will pour his feelings on paper for all of his Beliebers to hear and weep over. "[I'm] writing about how I feel," he says.
Oh, did we mention he's self-producing on this one? He adds, "I've been producing on my laptop and on my computer. I've been really into it and, hopefully, this next album will be huge."
Huge, like Justin Bieber huge? Honestly, we're not sure if you can surpass world domination, but we have high hopes for the Biebs to tackle the universe next. And the sky's the limit, right? Or ... Not. "I'm not gonna really limit myself," he says. "I think music is music, and genre — I mean, I know there's country music, there's rock music, but my music is different. My voice is not meant for any style. I just want to make music."
Bring it on, Biebtastic!
