Randy Newman has a goal of making an electronic dance music album. The musician, who has been mostly associated with Pixar over the last several years, discussed his career with Rolling Stone and declared himself a fan of EDM.
Newman said he particularly appreciated David Guetta and Calvin Harris and added, "I'd like to do an EDM record – get some Swedish guy, have him do 700 dates ‘til he breaks, then get another one. I could write it. I think I could. Some of that's kind of irresistible."
Hip-Hop is apparently on his list as well. Newman said, "You know, Kanye West is a hell of a lyricist. The music's great, too."
