Tinashe’s often-delayed Joyride album seems like it’ll be at least a couple more months before it sees the light of day.
In a recent interview with The Guardian, Tinashe said she plans “on doing a solid few more months recording” and hopes to release the album later this year. She clarified her album isn’t in label limbo, though. “It’s not like it’s sitting in a vault locked up, it’s always getting better and improving.”
She also spoke out about sexism in the music industry during the interview: “There’s a lot of sexism in the music business,” she said. “A lot of sexism. As far as female producers or female engineers … when you’re in these studios, it’s all men. It is so rare that they’d not even expect me to have an opinion.
“It’s so much easier for male artists, I know it is.”
Tinashe did release Nightride — a steamy compliment to her upcoming album — last year, though, noting that she wanted something out between her 2014 album Aquarius and Joyride and that her label was “aware that my fanbase wants new music.”
