Katy B: ‘I might get pregnant and make a country album’

The London singer said her forthcoming LP contains 'love and sex and passion and jealousy'

Katy B has said that she “might get pregnant and make country album”.

Echoing the sentiments of Lily Allen, who made a similar comment in 2011 before the birth of her first child, Katy B told the Guardian that she doesn’t know what direction her music will take in in the future, but that for the time being her forthcoming new album is very much aligned with London grime and dubstep radio station Rinse.

She said: “I definitely think this is still a Rinse record. I’ve worked with Geeneus [Rinse boss and producer] all along the way and it feels like it’s half of his creation. It’s kind of like I am in a band with Rinse. You never know, in the future, it might go somewhere else, I might get pregnant and make a country album, but right now this is Katy vs Rinse.”

Speaking further about the follow-up to 2011’s ‘On A Mission’, which is yet to have an official release date, she said: “There is love and sex and passion and jealousy on this record, for sure. I had relationships that meant a lot to me when I was writing ‘On a Mission’, but with this album, I’ve had another relationship and that has been… realer. Life is less of a fantasy.”
