Iggy Azalea Wants An Album Without Filler Songs

Iggy Azalea is in Australia as brand ambassador for Bonds to celebrate the underwear company’s 100th birthday.

She took the time to do a few interviews, and tackled issues like new music and her plans for a future tour.

In a radio interview, she spoke about the new approach she is taking for her sophomore album. She admits that on The New Classic, her debut album, she settled for having a few filler songs, stating “the approach was really trying to find big smash singles or songs that I thought that would be something multiple generations would like at the same time (…) I was going in with that attitude and anything that fell a little short was like, ‘well, it can make it on the album’.”

When it came time to work on her new LP, Iggy decided to take the time to create a high quality album start-to-finish. “My goal was just to make something that I love every song on my album,” she revealed. “That’s really tough when you’re an artist — to actually not have any complaints and be fully satisfied with every song. I wanted no filler.”

As for touring?

You may remember that the “Black Widow” singer cancelled her Great Escape arena tour back in May. She blamed the cancellation on being a perfectionist and not feeling that the show was ready for public consumption.

During a press conference in Sydney, the rapper promised that she will be making it up to fans with a tour for her new album.”Once my album comes out I plan to come back and it will happen. I just don’t want to do it until my album is out” she stated. “So once that happens I will cement a plan and I will let you guys know”. So when can fans expect to see Iggy on a stage near them? The “Fancy” singer revealed that new music and a tour are coming soon, “definitely in the first half of next year”.

Iggy certainly has a long way to go to get back in music fans’ good graces, after cancelling her tour and becoming a punching bag for internet trolls everywhere. Here’s hoping Iggy’s new album and tour can help her regain the respect of the public.
