While out making the rounds to promote his new $400 headphones, Dr. Dre is also making renewed promises about Detox. Dr. Dre announces to USA Today:
“I’m just now — over the last couple of months — starting to feel that it’s going to be right and it’s something I can be proud of, and everybody is going to love it,” says Dr. Dre (aka Andre Young). “In a perfect world, I’m shooting for a November or December release.” All I’m saying is, that album had better be the most flawless musical recording ever conceived. He goes on to say that once it finally drops, we shouldn’t hold our breath for a follow up.
“We have an entirely new thing going with the drums that’s incredible, and we’re still developing that.” All “the usual suspects” will make guest appearances, including Nas, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne. As long as the wait for the upcoming album has been, Dre says it’ll be even longer before there’s another one. “I’m going to put this record out, promote it, tour and then become a hermit. I’m going to stay in the studio and produce.”
