Brandy Eyes March 2012 For New Album Release

Published: Friday 16th Dec 2011 by Sam

It’s been a long time coming (three years to be exact), but Brandy‘s new studio album is a-coming. In March 2012 to be precise.

Details after the jump…

The songstress, 32, shared particulars about the closely-guarded project with Billboard. Peep what she had to say about the LP, her first under her new label partnership with RCA/Chameleon, below…

On The Album’s Direction:

“What I’m truly excited about is how the album is all about R&B and figuring out the new sound of R&B, and that was the challenge for me. I wanted to do something different — I didn’t want to just sing about love over regular beats. I think the fans have been very patient with me, but I just wanted to make sure that this album was right — the right type of music, the right core. I feel like we’re getting to that point where I felt comfortable with putting something out.”

On Working With Frank Ocean (who joins the likes of Timbaland, Jim Jonsin, and Bangladesh on the project):

“We’ve always had that great chemistry [after working together on 2008’s ‘Human’], and we both understand music in the same ways. To work with him on this album was great as well, and I hope I can get in [the studio] with him some more because his music is just so moving; I’m inspired by him. I think he’s a great artist and he hasn’t even touched on what he will touch on in the future.”

On The Album’s Release Date / Tour:

“We’re aiming for March, but I don’t know if March is going to be the actual time the album comes out,” she says), Brandy says that, whenever the album is released, her first extended tour since 2009 will soon follow. “I haven’t been on tour in God knows how long, so it’s definitely time to revisit the stage and really look at the fans eye-to-eye. Nothing beats that” {Source}

The most potent quote from Ms. Norwood was her acknowledgement that her fans have been exceptionally patient. No doubt on of the perks when you’re an artist who consistently serves up quality with each and every musical outing. March certainly couldn’t come any sooner!

    Now my heart is racing, i cant wait. Tell us about the release date of the first single. Pliz announce the date of release so tht people are aware of wts going on. Luv u brandy.

    I’m sorry but March is way too early for Brandy to release an album. If she had a lead single out already then maybe but this is not enough time to promote. She’s not as big as she used to be, so rushing an album out is not gonna help it do well. I say wait till May to release it so you have at least 2 singles with both music videos out getting some good rotation on TV and radio then release your album while the iron is hot and continue promoting with at least 3 more singles and a nationwide tour.
