In an inteview with The Guardian, Mary J. Blige let us know that she’s been overseas in London for the past month looking for some inspiration to begin working on her new album. The legendary R&B singer came out with 10 new sounds for her upcoming album titled ‘Mary J. Blige: The London Sessions’, which is set to release November 2014. The album will consist of 10 records and features incredible artists like UK singer, Sam Smith.

She also touched on how much more “freedom” UK artists have with their music in comparison to the creative norms & limitations that have been created in the music made in the US.

“Our idea was to become part of London, to really embrace the culture – to really live in it. Not that I haven’t been here before, but I’ve never had the chance to really soak in it the way I have this time. To make records [“rekkits”] from the London-scene perspective.” What is that exactly? What does she think London has? “Freedom,” she says. “The music is free over here the way it used to be in the States. Artists are just free to do what they love. Listening to the radio you can hear the freedom. The music is living and breathing – you can hear that from Adele’s last album. It was massive – a big deal. But she did what she loved.”
