#BerryCool: Asher Roth States Sophomore Album Is Scheduled For A January Release
In a recent interview with MTV, Asher Roth finally mentioned his sophomore album will finally hit stores in January. After many delays and a couple name changes, Asher states the project will be ready for release very soon. A tentative January 22nd date is scheduled, mentioned Roth but the new title will be revealed in the coming weeks. He also spoke on the overall sound of his upcoming album.
“We’re scheduled for January 22,” he said. “I can’t reveal the title of it yet. I wish I could. We’re getting there…We’re re-energizing it with something brand new and we’ll announce it in a couple of weeks. I’m deciding between two or three different ideas. It’s just a matter of getting everybody on the same page.
“We’re carving out a sound, man. The thing about my music is I listen to a whole bunch of different music and I’m a firm believer in progression, whether it be expanding your palate for food or your taste in music. So you’ll find all types of influences in there like it’s up and down, it’s active but it’s really sad, there’s blues influence, alternative-rock influences and pop influences. It’s very accessible and fun…I’m sick of listening to music right now that’s the same shit over and over again. I’m excited to be putting out something that’s accessible and it’s not so left-field you can’t even enjoy it, like, ‘Oh, you’re such an artist.’ We’re just making some really fun music.”
