Eve is gearing up for the release of her new album Lip Lock, her first since 2002’s Eve-Olution.
In a recent interview with Billboard Eve reveals, “You can officially expect ‘Lip Lock’ on May 14″ – barring any delays of course.
Eve will release Lock on her independent label FTR Music (From the Ribs Music).
“It’s not the same record. I just kept the same name,” she says about the album which will be distributed by Sony/Red. “It took a minute to get out of the situation that I was in back then. That’s what took so long.”
Lip Lock will feature guest appearances by Snoop Dogg and Chrisette Michele with tracks including ‘Mama in the Kitchen, Eve and her next single Make it Out This Town, featuring Gabe Saporta from Cobra Starship, which drops in about 3 weeks.
“It is a track about being in a dark place — or you could literally say being in the town that you’re in but you have bigger dreams or bigger hopes… just making it out of that situation and knowing that you can do whatever it is that you put your mind to. It’s a song that I’m dedicating and using with my partnership with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.”
