Timothy McKenzie, also known as Labrinth, revealed that he has plans to make an Arctic Monkey-esque rock album.
Labrinth spoke earlier today at the first BBC Music Awards in London. He released his debut, Electronic Earth in 2012 and he is planning to release his second album, Take Me to the Truthin 2015. Two singles have been released from the album earlier this fall, “Let It Be,” and “Jealous.”
He said, “A lot of people after the first two records, ‘Let It Be and ‘Jealous’, were like ‘Lab, you’ve taken a turn!’ I just respect when artists try and develop and you hear something new when you listen to an artist. So for me this album is me evolving and trying to spread my wings. Because I want to do everything.”
He continued talking about his plans for his third album saying, “I want to do a rock album after this album. I want to produce [something] like Arctic Monkeys or Coldplay – I can go over there.”
