After just wrapping up a track with Will Heard titled “Anywhere,” Dillon Francis has just revealed to Triple J that he’s got an album in the works.
“Right now yeah, I’m working on an album. Or I guess it’s like an LP, like seven to eight songs I think.”
If that’s not the best news you’ve heard all day, go ahead and spork my tuna. Apart from music, he’s still charging ahead with his film career, trying to get into voice acting and land a couple other roles. Regardless, here are a few more details about Dillon’s forthcoming collection.
“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 [Money Sucks, Friends Rule], 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.'”
We actually asked Dillon about the possibility of an album back in August and he said “I don’t really have in mind if I’m going to do an album right now or keep doing singles.” But he also said that if he was going to make an album, it would be in the sound of “Anywhere.” He continued, “I don’t want it to be like last time. Because now I understand the faults of my last album, where it’s so ADD. Which is my personality though, but I would want to sit down and make something that’s super cohesive and that really you can listen to and be like ‘okay I hear all the soundscapes that are in every single song that the producer used differently, but they’re all intertwined.’”
