Timbaland Announces New Album ‘Opera Noir’


From Jay Z to Michael Jackson, Timbaland has had a hand in some of the biggest albums of the past year. Now the super-producer is finally ready to seize the moment with his long-awaited solo album.

Opera Noir, which stands for black opera, will serve as his fourth album, he announced to REVOLT.

“It’s a culture thing. It’s the truth. It’s just about life in general. My life. My personal life, and I found myself as an artist and human being and as a man. I found who I am,” said Timbo, who is executive producer of Michael Jackson’s posthumous album Xscape.

But while he has many famous friends, don’t expect many features. “Me and my new artist, her name is V. Just me and her. And CeeLo. That’s it,” he said. “When [Opera Noir] comes out and you see the whole package, you’ll understand why. You’ll see it, and you’ll be like, ‘Wow, I’ve never seen nothing like this.’”

He has compared the album to his version of Dr. Dre’s 1992 classic The Chronic. “I finally made my Chronic,” he said.

Timbaland had previously announced plans to release Textbook Timbo as the follow-up to 2009′s Shock Value II.

    I respect and love him as a producer, but i think that he can’t carry the whole album all by himself without features.
