London: Singer Usher says his forthcoming seventh album `The Shanertance` is inspired by his visit to Coachella festival.
The 33-year-old soul superstar has already made waves with the Diplo-produced single `Climax`, and the album also features collaborations with a range of leftfield artists including Empire Of The Sun, who produced the track `Looking For Myself`, The Sun online reported.
"A lot of my fans won`t expect what I`ve done on this album. And when we started working on `Looking For Myself` in fact the week that I wrote and produced the record it was right after we`d come back from Coachella. And having gone to Coachella in California, it really kind of gave us an opportunity to have a restart, because that was certainly a different experience for me.
"I said, `I love the feeling that we have here and the different styles of music, let`s find a way to make an album that works everywhere, that works here, works for my fans, works for the classic audience, works for my pop audience, and that`s why you feel you`re hearing this eclectic mixture of music`," he said.
