Tank Caters to the Ladies on Concept Album

Tank is planning on showing the ladies how to love. Currently readying the March release of his fifth album Savior, the singer-songwriter says that the follow-up to last year’s Now or Never will be a concept album where “every song caters to the women” and that the music will respond to different emotions.

Savior is a concept album, when Now or Never was more of an ‘I’m back’ album,” Tank tells Rap-Up.com. “With that one, I was fighting the good fight for R&B. It took a lot of turns but focused on R&B. Savior is very much about subject matter. Every song caters to the women. Musically it takes a little bit more of a journey because some women like it slow and sensual and some women like it rough, so we kind of mix up the music to convey that.”

The smooth crooner dropped his mixtape Diary of a Mad Man on Black Friday, a project where he showed a looser side of himself—something that listeners have responded to. “I’ve found that women do like a little bit of crazy, so it’s been received well so far,” he shares.

For Savior, Tank tucks away his crazy and tries his best to be a woman’s hero. “It’s called Savior because every woman deserves a savior. I’m not saying I’m a savior in any way, but women do deserve one.”

While Tank has already finished recording Savior, he’s holding off until next year to drop the LP for promotional reasons. “We gotta set the album up. We can’t just throw it out there,” he explains. “The fourth quarter kind of shuts down because of the holidays, so we don’t want a shutdown during our campaign.”
