A month after releasing his latest album ‘Whitsitt Chapel,’ Jelly Roll is getting ready for his new project. In a chat with Loudwire Nights, he hinted at future plans that might include collaborations with Shinedown’s Brent Smith and Falling In Reverse’s Ronnie Radke.
During the interview, the singer revealed his ideas for an upcoming record and said:
“I’m a huge fan of a guy named Tech N9ne. This cool thing he used to do, where every like third album, he would drop an album called the ‘Collabo,’ and it would be 10 or 12 songs, like a real LP, but he would have a feature on every song. And I called Tech N9ne myself and said I’m not gonna call it ‘Callabo,’ but I just want you to know, before you read about it through the media, I’m stealing the idea. And that’s how I’m going to do my rock record.”
Roll named Smith and Radke as potential partners in this project. He explained how much these artists would be involved in the upcoming album’s creation by claiming:
“I want to go with them and write it together and produce the record together with each one of these artists individually and kind of make a story … I’ve already talked to a bunch of people to set up all this stuff. I’m hoping to get into real album mode come after the tour. So I’ll write on tour, I’ll start having pitch ideas for people.”
While the singer is yet to work with Falling In Reverse’s vocalist, he has a past with the Shinedown frontman. Last year, Jelly Roll supported Smith’s band during their Planet Zero World Tour.
Talking about his experiences with the band, he told WRAT radio:
“Dude, I was a sponge. I stood side-stage every night and watched every minute of every set. I watched the way their team loaded in. I watched the way their tour manager talked to people. […] I treated it like a full-blown course study.”
