“This album isn’t about Twitter battles,” the Australian rapper said in a newly published interview with Entertainment Weekly. “It’s about the way other people can distort your character and having the power through technology to do that.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Azalea revealed that her sophomore studio album will be available on June 24.
Iggy also spoke on what it was like working with D.R.U.G.S. again, the same production team who assisted on her debut mixtape, Ignorant Art.
“I just felt like they really understood me so I went back to working with my friends,” she said. “It’s harder than my debut — more aggressive. It’s a little bit darker and moodier and there’s a bit more of a throwback to some of my older mixtape sounds. But it’s got electronic influences used in a rap way. My version of rap is alway always controversial.”
Azalea also announced that Digital Distortion will include a love song, an unlikely move for the Def Jam artist.
“It’s the one song I did that’s lovey because [fiancé] Nick [Young] was like, ‘You don’t have any love songs. I don’t exist,’” she added. “I usually do break-up ‘I hate you songs,’ but I’m getting married so I can’t write those anymore.”
Last month, Iggy Azalea signed a new worldwide distribution deal with WME.
Earlier this week it was reported that a Grammy Award-winning producer was suing Iggy Azalea for $1.5 million.
