In today’s news of a collaboration we never saw coming, Diana Ross is officially in the works of collaborating with Tame Impala.
According to Music News, a source said, “Diana might be 77 but she is determined to push musical boundaries and challenge herself. She loves reinvention and melting genres together. She’s really excited to work with Tame Impala and is ecstatic with the track – she can’t wait for fans to hear it.”
Ross also issued a statement on her forthcoming album, saying that she is “eternally grateful” that she has been able to record another album which will be her first in over two decades.
She said, “This collection of songs is my gift to you with appreciation and love. I am eternally grateful that I had the opportunity to record this glorious music at this time.”
“I dedicate this songbook of love to all of you, the listeners. As you hear my voice you hear my heart. ‘Let Love Lead the Way,'” Ross continued.
The ‘Upside Down’ singer also stated that it’s going to be “upbeat” as she wants the music to reflect where she is in life right now. She doesn’t “want to sing the blues”.
She said at the time: “I’m getting ready to go in the studio and do another album and I want to do songs from where I am at – is that the right English? – at this point in time in my life because I feel so incredibly grateful and appreciative of you. I don’t want to sing the blues. I want to sing songs that really speak to you and where I’m at at this time in my life, and optimism, and positive.”
