It’s the album the music industry has been awaiting with bated breath. And while no release date has been set for Missy Elliott‘s much anticipated comeback, it hasn’t quelled excitement for the set – her first since 2005’s ‘The Cookbook’.
Today saw her longtime collaborator Timbaland whip up more buzz in an interview with Rolling Stone.
See what the hitmaker had to say about how Elliott’s LP is shaping up after the jump…
Excerpt via Rolling Stone:
“It’s coming. It’s on her. She got the first single, it’s just a matter of when she wants to do it. We got the hollow-tip bullet in the gun. We have the game-changer right there,” he says, making the sound of a gun firing.
Asked what that bullet sounds like, Timbaland replied: “It’s something you ain’t never heard Missy do. It sounds today, but the future.”
Having been teased with ‘9th Inning’ and ‘Triple Threat’ in 2012, things have been relatively quiet on the Missy front sans a few feature spots. At least there’s confirmation that an album is still being baked in the studio. Here’s hoping it’s served up sooner rather than later, as the industry could do with the lofty levels of innovative Elliott brings to the table.
