Ari Lennox has been eager for fans to hear what she’s been working on — and the wait is dwindling down. On Wednesday, the singer announced that her new single, “Hoodie,” will be dropping on Friday. The song is the first to be released off an album she says is finally done.
Ari has come a long way since March, when she was deciding which of 80 songs would make her final track list. Now, she’s ready to share her music with everyone.
“I don’t want to keep this music any longer. I want to release it to the world,” she said in an interview with Vibe.com. “I think it’s a part of healing to release music, and I kind of feel like it’s a whole bunch of just … stuff I have to keep inside, when I would like to just get it out. And, I also start thinking about new music. It’s like it kind of creates a block in regards to creating new music because I want to, but I have to focus on getting my baby out.”
As far as what fans can expect from the album, Ari says there will be “a lot of singing.” “It’s just beautiful soul music, a lot of attention to detail, and a lot of vulnerability,” she teased.
