Zedd released a full statement regarding his MTV interview, in which he spoke a bit about ARTPOP, referring to the project as “rough”. Check out what he said below:
There’s been an interview where some things I said were placed out of context and misunderstood so I wanna make sure you guys know what I was ACTUALLY saying before media bent it to what they wish I said.
I never said ARTPOP is “rough” of “far away from being finished”! I was speaking about my own material with her and how we have to finish that up. I’m a perfectionist and to me everything that’s not perfect yet is “rough”, and that’s also why it’s going to be so good!
When I said “it could be 10, it could be 5, it could be 1 song” I obviously didn’t talk about the amount of songs on ARTPOP in general, I was talking about the amount of MY tracks/ productions on ARTPOP. We worked on a lot of songs and I don’t know which of our collaborations are making the album; she is in creative control of that decision.
I hope you all have more clarity now!
