Our favorite dirrty girl, Christina Aguilera, is back in the studio laying down tracks for her next album and she's (oh so wisely) chosen to venture into a musical landscape she's never encountered before with the help of a few unexpected collaborators: Sia (perhaps best known for her song "Breathe Me" which was featured on Six Feet Under) and electro-dance mavens Ladytron.
Sia recently blogged about working with Aguilera, saying:
christina is still amazing as ever,i call her the mad scientist,and
oh,how we laugh.the songs are shaping up beautifully,and i'm super
proud of us.i seriously want to chomp on her kid like he's corn on the
cob. holy cuteness. today at the studio we learned about.....hot
spots,a common dog ailment,hydrogen peroxide (be sure to dilute when
using for ANYTHING),the spelling and pronunciation of temperament
(befuddling),the beauty of the tv show House,the joy of mid afternoon
milkshakes prepared by lance,with a cherry on top no less and finally,
that according to sam,it's never an inappropriate time to shout
'sexwee!' at a multi-platinum-selling artist. god bless you all,new and
old. god bless lycra. i just want to be comfortable. right?
We went in with no expectations; the whole thing was a massive
surprise. But it was incredible. She was so musically
talented, a vocalist who really knows her voice. The first takes
sounded really amazing, and while we’d made demos, it was only when her
voice was on them that it all came to life. It’s nice to talk about
them, we’ve been sitting on this for a while!
No firm date for the album has been set yet but trust us, the second we know, you'll know.
