‘1 Thing’ singer Ameriie has been very busy considering her extended absence from the music scene. Now, after marrying manager Lenny Nicholson, the newlywed is eyeing a return to the charts in 2012 with her 5th studio album ‘Cymatika’.
See what the Island Def Jam beauty had to say after the jump:
Right now I’m continuing the recording process for the album. The album is called Cymatika, which is named after cymatics, the study of visual sound. The last album was very hip-hop soul, R&B, and rock, but this time I fused electronica and new wave, and a lot of classic song structure.
We’re thinking we’re going to put it out probably like spring of next year. It’s not finished yet. It’s all about the creative process. Half the time by the time we deliver the album and it’s already mixed and mastered I’m on to the next sound.
Here’s hoping the singer’s ‘next sound’ is one that cements her place on the charts. It is unfortunate that artists like Ameriie are losing their identities by succumbing to the wave that is electro-pop. With early leaks like ‘Outside Your Body’ possibly indicating the direction the album is going, Mrs. Rogers-Nelson runs the risk of being trapped in that same cliche.
However, regardless of how the singer’s past attempts have fallen deaf on record buyer’s ears, her music has always been an eclectic fusion of genres that is much appreciated – even if only by devoted fans. Let’s hope next-go-round, that appreciation expands.
