He also releases his next single...
In an interview with Billboard, Usher spoke about his new album, which is currently untitled. It will be his eighth album overall and debuts in the fall. The first single, "Good Kisser", can be heard below. Here are highlights:
On the new song: "Real music is taking a stand. Artists are going after real instrumentation as opposed to electronic, synthesized music."
On the recent he hasn't toured: "I decided to work on a film here, a TV show here, raise kids there. But this next album and tour comes with all of who I am and everything I've learned in the process, in addition to me moving and keeping it sexy for the ladies."
RCA President of Urban Music Mark Pitts on Usher's new material: I haven't felt this way since ‘Confessions'. I said to him, ‘We're not going in to try to make a hit. Let's go in there to try and make great music. This feels like a cohesive body of work. Last album, we started [Usher's audience] off with ‘Climax.' Then we smacked them in the face with some dance shit. But this album feels like it's all from the same guy."
