Diddy recently spoke on his upcoming Interscope Records debut, The Last Train To Paris, and explained that he placed emphasis on making the record more emotional than previous releases.
According to Puff, the album is going to bypass the industry's fear of placing emotion into music.
"One of the things we're trying to represent is emotion," Diddy said of the upcoming album. "Not being afraid to show emotion on record. A lot of records out right now -- no disrespect to them, but they're all surface. It's about what people have or a dance. All our records are gonna be about love, feelings and emotion. Last Train to Paris is a love story and the most vulnerable album I've ever been involved in. It's raw emotion -- you get a feeling, a vibe." (MTV)
The project will mark Diddy's first release under Interscope.
"I had started some previous business relationships with Jimmy Iovine," Diddy said in an interview. "I am not abandoning any of my artists over there, I still have that imprint. But all my future recordings, including my recording contract, that will be at Interscope Records...We are going to take our time with the amount of acts that we sign...We want to find those very unique artists. We want to build something very special that's not already out there." (All Hip Hop)
Diddy has also recruited a star-studded line-up of producers.
As with all of his albums, the new CD will include collaborations with hot-right-now producers The-Dream and T-Pain and perhaps overly familiar names on the urban-pop front; The Neptunes, Rodney Jerkins, Mario Winans and Tricky. (Baltimore Sun)
The album was originally slated for a fall release.
"It's deeper than any of the other stuff I have ever made," Diddy said. "Last Train To Paris comes out in September...T-Pain gave me permission to use the vocoder, the auto-tune, and he showed me various tricks that nobody knows but him and myself." (All Headline News)
