While on tour in Europe this month, Usher did an interview to discuss the "revolutionary pop" sound that will be present on his next album. He recently worked on a track with David Guetta & Akon, & hit the studio with Swedish House Mafia (who collaborated with Laidback Luke on "Leave The World Behind", which featured Deborah Cox on vocals). I love how he uses the word 'pop' as if it's some middle ground between R&B & dance... we're not fooled, sir, we know you've gone completely dance on us. Anyway, UR said he is looking to release the project "early next year," which, considering the article was posted this month & he didn't go overseas until this year, apparently means he doesn't plan on releasing his new album until 2012... so, not sure what happened to the whole not-waiting-to-release-another-album thing. In related news, Usher might appear on the next album from his European opener Tinie Tempah... O_o . Aaand there you have it!
