I was supposed to be in the studio with her a week ago, but I got a cold. I’ll see her when I’m back. I have about five or six tracks, just basic ideas. Drums, keyboard, bass. I’m going to be surprised, I think – I don’t have a clue about the way she’s recording. Will she play the piano? Will I?
So did she call you and say, “I want something that sounds like…”
No. I met her about two years ago. She loved me – the usual! (Laughs) And I did a remix for her last year – I did two versions and she took the more traditional of the two.
Are these sessions for her album, or yours?
This is for her new album – that’s the intention. I was hoping that maybe I can convince her to have one of the songs for my album. If I could convince her, well that would be incredible.
From what I’ve seen of her she can be quite spontaneous – if the mood takes her to do something fun, she’ll do it.
Maybe! Maybe. If I have a good track that could fit my album but not necessarily hers, that could be ideal.
