In a new interview, the singer said, “Most of the songs were started with me and Clarence Clarity, so it’s still got that core that ‘Sawayama’ had. I just want to write really big songs, songs that make me feel a certain way.”

Sawayama is trying to finish writing the follow-up to her 2020 self-titled debut. She is working with producers Paul Epworth and Stuart Price whom she mentioned as “incredible people”. Sawayama said about the album, “All these newcomers have been incredible. So much of it was written during the lockdown on Zoom sessions, which I hated. But somehow they yielded good songs. It will be out next year, hopefully.”

Rina Sawayama is currently in the UK. She explained that her second album is “even more personal. She said, “I’ve been listening to a lot of Garbage, prog rock, grunge, a lot of early ’00s Britpop, ‘Sound Of The Underground’ by Girls Aloud, a lot of the Xenomania stuff, and even ’90s rave as well. Plus garage and stadium rock – everything!”
