Published Apr 28, 2009While last year's epic Feed The Animals was just the poppy, tasteful choice Girl Talk (aka Greg Gillis) needed to make in order to properly follow-up his breakthrough Night Ripper, it seems as though his next album will further deviate from the A.D.D. complexity of his cut-and-paste style.
In an interview with Billboard, Gillis explained that he's very interested in applying traditional songwriting structures to his next album, saying, "I'm interested in working on individual songs - kind of in the style I've been doing but with actual repetition, as opposed to linear structure and stuff like that, some elements with a verse-and-chorus sort of structure, as opposed to going through 50 minutes of change-ups the entire time. I want to evolve and keep refining."
As for a timeframe for when the record will be released, Gillis is unsure but insists he's working all the time. "Every day I cut up music. I try not to be concerned with what will be on an album. I just try to come up with small ideas I introduce into the [live] set, and I'll eventually get to the point where I say, 'Okay, here's this slightly new sound. I feel like there's some evolution.' I'm interested in putting out music, and it's always nice to give people music."
