Emmy Rossum checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@emmyrossum) on Wednesday (August 13), discussing progress on her second album, the follow-up to the singer and actress’ 2007 debut ‘Inside Out’. The 21-year-old writes:
I’m starting to work on the new album… still trying to find the perfect “sound.” Someone really smart told me that you have to make records in order to find out what kinds of records you should be making. I think that they put it pretty well. It’s a discovery process, kind of like an archaeological dig… The perfect sound is there somewhere and just has to be uncovered. I’ve been writing and recording with artists and producers in London, Copenhagen and Los Angeles in the past few weeks. I’m pretty psyched that I’m getting to write and collaborate with some of my favorite artists. So you can “see” what I’ve been doing, I’m posting 2 new pics of me in the studio. One is of me, goofing around, wearing sparkly antennae at Matt Hales’ studio in London. He’s a great guy and we have a lot of fun in the studio. I love Aqualung – if you haven’t heard “Strange and Beautiful”, iTunes it immediately, it will make your day that much better. The black and white photo was taken here in LA in the studio last week.
I have also been working with Susan G Komen for the Cure and will have some exciting news about my specific involvement with them pretty soon. I’ll also be able to play you a song I wrote for them, called “Why Oh Why”.
