The sassy British singer Cher Llyod is back! Fans are going crazy for the 20-year-old’s single “Sirens“ and can’t wait for her new album, Sorry I’m Late to drop on May 24th. Lloyd recently chatted with Elle magazine about her new album!
Don’t expect any bubblegum pop songs. Lloyd’s second album takes a more mature approach.
“It exposes me. I feel like it shows the exact artist that I am. I’ve waited so long for a song like this,” Lloyd explains to Elle. “It gives me a massive opportunity to show people that I can sing. I’m not used to singing ballads; it’s what I did in the beginning. So it’s nice to bring that back. And it’s nice to have a song with a lot of meaning as opposed to previous singles where it’s all been a bit bubblegum and kind of childish. Now I’m trying to be a lot more grown up and show the softer side of me.”
The “Want U Back” singer also added:
“I feel like I’ve waited way too long. I’ve now gone past that stage of really needing it to come out. I’m now at the point where it’s like ‘OK, I’m done with waiting. My fans are done with waiting too.’ I wish I could just put it out tomorrow. And I feel like this album is completely me. I’m not saying that my previous album wasn’t me; it was pieces of me. But I didn’t have as much control over it. And this album I’ve had one hundred percent control: I’ve chosen the track list, I’ve chosen who I wanted to work with. So it’s a massive step for me.”
Listen to Sirens and let us know what you think!
