In a recent interview with Triple J, Dillon Francis has revealed that he’s working on a new album. It will serve as the producer’s first full length studio effort since 2014’s Make Friends Not Money and the follow up to his This Mixtape Is Fire EP from last year.
Speaking with the Australian radio station, Francis offered up a few details about the forthcoming record, stating “right now yeah, I’m working on an album. Or I guess it’s like an LP, like seven to eight songs I think.” He expanded on his vision for the LP, revealing that he hopes to make something more cohesive than his last full length effort.
For the LP/Album I want to make, I actually want to work more with Latin artists and do more stuff that’s very Spanglish, Moombahton style. I just really want to make something that’s cohesive, because the last album that I made, I feel like it was really all over the place, so this is the concept I want to go with and I really want people to listen to it and go, ‘nailed it.’
In a previous interview with YourEDM from August, Dillon Francis stated that if he were to release another album, it would be in the style of his recent single “Anywhere” with Will Heard. “Anywhere” saw Francis exploring a new direction, taking on the pop friendly style of acts like Major Lazer and Calvin Harris, and we would definitely be excited to see him try his hand at more songs like that in the future.
Dillon Francis isn’t offering up any details on a release date at this point, but we’ll keep you updated with any new information as it becomes available.
