Tinashe readies new music.

After a challenging year, Tinashe says she’s in a better place and is gearing up to release new music she quietly worked on throughout 2019.

The “2 On” crooner reveled she has gone through “a lot of changes” and now feels “inspired and free” to make the kind of music she wants to.

You may recall her sophomore album, Joyride, was continually delayed while under a contract with RCA – that seriously slowed down her momentum and it resulted in lackluster sales. She has since left the label.

“I know that I have been quiet for a minute, I’ve been in my cave, I’ve been working … but I am so inspired lately and feeling so free throughout the last year and a little bit more,” Tinashe said.

“I’ve been going through a lot of changes… Creatively, I just feel like I needed to go through what I went through in order to be the person that I am today and to get back to my roots. 

She added: “It’s so f***ing crazy. You pretty much put your heart and soul and emotions into all these songs and then you put them out there for the world to judge and tear down and pick apart. It’s terrifying and it can really mess with your head.”

“You know, f*** the system. F*** anyone who tries to put you in a box and tries to limit you and tries to tell you that you can’t be this and that, that you have to be this or that.

“Music and art are supposed to be these wonderful beautiful things that bring people joy and happiness, and that’s really why I started making music in the first place – to give people something that means something to them.”

Word on the street is that Tinashe will release new music this year.
