Tinashe is sharing why she’s “so excited” about her fifth studio album, 333.
In an interview with Billboard prior to the album’s release on August 6, Tinashe says she couldn’t “wait to finally” have her fans hear her completed work.
“Especially thinking about shows and performing these songs live,” she says. “The best part is always before a project drops, when the anticipation is building.”
It’s safe to say that this album is extremely meaningful for Tinashe, who reveals that she actually finalized her album in 2020 amid the pandemic.
“There were things I learned out of having time to sit with myself and my thoughts and I think that led to creating this music,” she explains.
After ending her record deal with RCA Records in 2019, and releasing 333 independently under her own label, Tinashe Music, the independent singer-songwriter says it’s been “awesome” to have “full creative control.”
“The majority of the songs, I wrote myself in my studio in my house where I feel the most in tune,” she says. “It’s empowered me and feels good to have that thread of continuity in my work, it’s been a game changer.”
As an independent artist, Tinashe also is managed by Jay Z‘s Roc Nation. She says working on Jay’s imprint “has been a great home” for her.
“They’ve allowed me the space to have creative freedom and given me that confidence, because they really support all of my creative decisions,” she adds.
333 is available on all music platforms.
