Cassadee Pope Wants to Release a Single by Mid-January, Have an Album Out by February 2013
Cassadee Pope won The Voice Season 3 less than a month ago, but she’s kicking off 2013 with a bang — and new original music!
Though it’s only Jan. 2, the rocker hopes to release a single in mere weeks and have her album out by February. It may seem like an insane, lofty goal, but she has a leg up since she never stopped writing.
“I want to be involved in the writing, I want to do co-writes with people and get something going as soon as possible. I’m hoping to release an album in January or February,” she dished to TVLine. “The thing is, I’ve been writing. I’ve always kept writing. There’s never been a moment where I went through a spell where I just don’t write. So I have a lot of material, which I’m really excited about. It’s all acoustic right now, but as soon as I can get in the studio with some great producers it’ll probably come to life.”
However, the first step for her is to figure out what direction she’s going in — perhaps being an “edgier Taylor Swift” — which she plans to kick off in the first few days of the New Year.
“We’re going to start talking about where I’m going to go direction-wise [on my album], what writers I’m going to write with. I would love to have some songs on the album be just written by me,” she admitted to Entertainment Weekly. “[We'll] hopefully get a single out by mid-January.”
