American singer Lizzo never stops immersing herself in different projects and innovating with everything she does. The last thing she has brought us is the announcement of her new work titled Special, which will be released in physical and digital format on July 15. According to the singer, she has been working on this album for three years and is very excited for its release.
To whet the appetite for this special era, on April 15 she premiered the song About Damn Time produced by Blake Slaktin and Ricky Reed, a track with a very danceable style, disco style, which has all the cards to become the song of the summer. The feel-good track is a disco-funk throwback about letting go of stress and frustrations for a bit of celebration.
Lizzo faces the release of his most anticipated album after the success of Truth Hurts, one of the biggest hits of 2019, and other singles that also triumphed in the aftermath. The supposed first single of this new album, Rumours with Cardi B, arrived last summer and disappointed commercially, so it is not very clear that it will be part of the full-length. Those we will see on the album are Ian Kirkpatrick, producer of Dua Lipa and Mark Ronson. Kirkpatrick has assured that he has recorded up to 20 songs with Lizzo and that 3 of them will appear on this new album.
Lizzo has recently talked about her upcoming album, which “unexpectedly” will revolve around love, but not about self-love, but about the love Lizzo feels for another person
The singer has commented that she decided to change the content of the album just a few months ago to include more hard-hitting songs: “The story is that I changed the album at the last minute. I removed a lot of songs that didn’t fit with the new vibe I’m in. Especially after I wrote ‘About Damn Time’. I wrote it a couple of months ago and I think I had like an epiphany where I said, “okay, I just want love songs. Just about love. And bangers. I wanted to do Lizzo bangers again. So, even if they’re ballads… they’re bangers. Every song is memorable and delicious and it’s going to make you want to listen to them over and over again, non-stop.”
