Timbaland Keeps Collaborations to a Minimum for New Album
Timbaland has been putting together a follow-up to 2009’s Shock Value II, and the release has gone through multiple title changes, being known at one point simply as Shock Value III, later as Rebirth, and then Textbook Timbo last year. Now, it appears, he’s calling it Opera Noir.
In a recent interview with Revolt, the rapper and producer revealed that he considers this album his Chronic, referencing the influential Dr. Dre release from the early 1990s. Then, talking about his vision, he told the publication: “It’s a culture thing. It’s the truth. It’s just about life in general. My life. My personal life, and I found myself as an artist and human being and as a man. I found who I am.”
As well, the rapper known for packing his releases with collaborations mentioned that he has kept guest artist appearances to a minimum. He explained: “Me and my new artist, her name is V. Just me and her. And Cee-Lo. That’s it. When [Opera Noir] comes out and you see the whole package, you’ll understand why. You’ll see it, and you’ll be like, ‘Wow, I’ve never seen nothing like this.’”
As of now, a release date hasn’t been announced, and Timbaland hasn’t yet revealed plans for an official first single.
