Doja Cat has been inspired by 1990s German rave music for her new album.
The ‘Kiss Me More’ hitmaker is working on her fourth record – the follow-up to 2021 LP ‘Planet Her’ – and admitted the “challenge” she and her collaborators are facing is taking their “many ideas” and making them “consistent”.
Speaking to the CR Fashion Book, she said: “We just have so many ideas and making those ideas consistent is the challenge right now.
“I can’t really tell much. I just know there’s a lot going on. I’m very into this ’90s German rave kind of vibe right now and it’s really fun.”
Although Doja recognises a trend of artists embracing electronic influences – such as Drake on ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ and Beyonce on ‘Renaissance’ – it’s something she’s always been in love with.
She added: “I know that’s kind of the trend at the moment but I loved that stuff as a kid and now that I can express it (obviously, I couldn’t buzz my head and wear a furry bra and have a belly button piercing back then), I’m sort of embracing that.
“That’s kind of a hint to the album. Rave culture, not house.”
Doja – who is yet to formally announce her next album – also revealed she’s currently having a studio built in her home, but for now she’s working in other locations.
She said: “There’s studios I go to; my friends have studios. I’m actually building a studio right now in my house, and I’m really excited about that.
“But that’s gonna take a little while, so for now, I have to go to certain places.”
Details on the next album are scarce, but Doja has revealed the material will be “predominantly rap”.
She previously explained: “I’ve rapped since the beginning, and I really couldn’t even sing that well to begin with — I got a lot better. “I use my voice as a tool to create these worlds, and it’s fine if people think that I can’t rap.” (MusicNews)
