Producer Scott Storch recently talked about Dr. Dre's long-awaited Detox album and said the rap veteran is taking a fresh approach to the project's overall sound.

According to Storch, Dre is taking a more experimental approach to the new record.

But don't expect the same sound as Dre's classic 2001 album. The beatmakers made sure not to include tracks that were too reminiscent of the past. "I think people will be pleasantly surprised when they hear it. It's definitely a departure from a lot of the stuff Dre has done and the stuff Dre and I have done in the past. It's a hybrid," he revealed. The long-awaited project is nearing completion. "I think he's looking for like three more records," Storch said, while joking, "So that should take about 400 records to get those three. He's got pretty high standards." (Rap-Up)

Recent reports suggested that Eminem delayed Dre's unreleased "Under Pressure" single.

Alright, enough with the jokes. Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine did an interview on Skyrock radio in France a little while ago and here's the information being supplied by my sources who heard them live: 1. 'Under Pressure's release was delayed because Eminem decided to drop his new one 'Not Afraid' first, which was not the original plan. 2. They now have another single ready, other than 'Under Pressure' but have not decided which one will come out first. They did stress on releasing it this Summer though. 3. They reaffirmed the fact that Detox will be out this year. Who here still has hopes? (Hip Hop N More)

Storch is also behind producing the Detox single.

Famed Grammy Award winning producer Scott Storch has come together with legendary Grammy Award winning super-producer Dr. Dre to produce the long awaited first single, "Under Pressure" off the highly anticipated album, "Detox." This project has been in the works for some time, which has created a wave of hope and anticipation. (Market Wire)

Dre recently said his new single would likely be released last March.

"Yes, hopefully we'll be releasing ['Under Pressure'] in the next two weeks or so," Dre said in an interview referring to his Jay-Z collaboration. "And I'm definitely gonna be putting the album out this year. Finally, you know, and I think everybody is gonna be happy with it. That's it right now. I'm just trying to finish this record, finally get it done, get it out and start promoting it." (CNBC)
