Having finished her debut album, “Fourth Corner,” more than a year ago, Trixie Whitley says she’s “really excited to move on to the next record.”
“I’m working on a lot of new stuff,” the daughter of the late singer-songwriter Chris Whitley and member of Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub tells Billboard. “This’ll be the first time I work on a second record, so it’s new for me. I have some more really distinct ideas, but I’ll need to go into a really concentrated writing period to get a real sense of what it’s going to be. I’m planning on taking a few breaks from (touring) to just go somewhere and sit in the south of France for a couple of weeks and take all the writing I’ve done and really collect it and look at it.”
