Willow Smith’s New Album Is Near

“It’s coming. It’s done.”

At only 15 years, Willow Smith is almost ready to serve her next full-length project. In a conversation with DJ Skee at Odd Future’s Camp Flog Gnaw carnival last week, she explained why she cut down her new album:

“I originally had 26 songs for the album. Then I looked at it and I said, ‘You know, nowadays the kids have a short attention span, so I think I should go in the teen area.’ So I cut it down to 14 [songs],” said Willow. “I usually don’t plan when I’m going to do certain things, so it’s taking longer than I expected. But it’s coming. It’s done.”

She also shared her thoughts on what type of legacy she would love to leave behind in the future:

“I don’t want to put out a thing that I want the world to see me as because it’s like everyone’s gonna see me as what they want to see me, and everyone’s just a projection in a mirror … I don’t want to put a label on myself.”

Watch the entire conversation, where Willow also opens up about channeling Punk bands on stage, in the video above.
