Lea Michele on Her Solo Album: It’ll Make You Want to Dance in Your Underwear
Are you as excited as we are about the mere thought of a Lea Michele (Rachel) solo album? Then your day just got a billion times better, it definitely sounds like there might be one in the works! Try not to squeal too loudly.
Lea Michele appears on the cover of this month’s issue of NYLON, and she tells the magazine about her plans for her upcoming debut album. So what kind of tunes can we expect to hear? Lea says that she hopes to record the kind of upbeat pop music that she likes to listen to, which she refers to as “power-girl songs.” Power-girl, eh? We’re guessing the Spice Girls are proud.
More than anything, Lea hopes that her songs will be anthemic and fun. “I want to make songs where girls can just roll down the windows of their car or dance around in their rooms in their underwear, like, ‘I hate my ex-boyfriend!’ or ‘I’m so in love!’” Given that this type of music has worked for, say, Kelly Clarkson or Katy Perry, we think Lea is definitely on the right track.
The only question we have left is: Why aren’t we listening to Lea’s album now?! Hurry up and finish it, Lea! We need something to listen to while we dance around in our underwear.
