'We just sit and write in a room and there's no pressure,' said the pop singer
The pop singer was speaking to Billboard about collaborating with Bobby Gillespie and Andrew Innes of the band, starting working with the pair last March.
“The reason I like working with them is because there’s absolutely no pressure,” she commented. “It’s nice to walk in somewhere and they’re not like, ‘Okay, your label is harassing me about this and that.’ I set it up without anyone else involved, so we just sit and write in a room and there’s no pressure. It’s also just really cool talking to [Bobby Gillespie]! Jesus and Mary Chain is one of my favorite bands ever, so at first I was a little nervous. It’s really nice to meet with someone and not be disappointed by it, to have them meet every expectation.”
Ferreira is currently working on her second album, which she explained will be “more aggressive” than her debut. “Right now, I have the opportunity to try things,” she said. “I’m enjoying myself a lot more. I think I’m in a different headspace than I was last time out, because so much has happened in the last year and a half. I think [the album] will be a little heavier. It’s not going to be an electronic album completely — it’s going to be a blend of everything.”
Ferreira recently revealed that she and Charli XCX are working on a track together and compared it to Russian pop duo Tatu. Writing on Twitter, Ferreira said: “I imagine a/this song written with @charli_xcx will sound very TATU”.
Tatu are best known for their electronic pop 2002 debut ‘All The Things She Said’ and their cover of The Smiths’ ‘How Soon Is Now?’
