  • Ashlee Simpson - Bittersweet World

    I searched and there was no topic for this yet.

    Ash is preparing her third album.

    Plotting Ashlee Simpson's next musical move is going to be "very tricky," producer/ Geffen Records chairman Ron Fair told MTV News. "She is a really great singer, and I think she proved that on her last record," he said. "She's in a very tight spot. She's got an extremely famous sister. Everything they do is magnified by the press. ... It's very hard to do anything if you're under that kind of scrutiny." But don't count the younger Simpson — who Fair called "a real star" — out just yet. "Our company is going to work with her and we're going to figure out how to overcome those prejudices ... because she deserves to be heard and she deserves a shot." ...

    She'd like to work with the Cure.

    I like her, she is extremely... likeable She found her sound, she knew what she was doing, and she's thus far made 2 really great albums. Especially I Am Me. I really enjoyed that record.

    Let's hope she does the hatrick

    I'm sure she will. Anyway, I don't know what Ron Fair's talking about. He talks out of his arse. Everyone prefers her to Jessica :-? I don't see it as a difficult album for Ashlee :-?

    I'd like a little bit of change, a bit of developement, nothing major though. Maybe a few dance elements. If she's being inspired by The Cure, that could be cool.

    If she gets a fly 1st single, the first week sales could be off the scale.

    She rocks

        Point one- i totally agree- complete waste of a great album.

        Point two- well, at least we know something is coming.
        The Cure- would be interesting, but they've hardly been full of pop gems recently, have they? Mint Car? Not exactly La La. :-?

            We got all her singles over in Australia. Possibly because no one in the UK bothers to buy her CDs, that's why she doesn't realease or promote in the UK... I mean after all, Leona Lewis is #1 atm in the UK :-? :-? :-? :-? :-? :-? :-? :-?

              I agree with Kushi. I Am Me debuted so badly in the UK and took some time to peak and even it's peak was low.

              But fantastic news, I would really like to hear what she has next. I Am Me was a great album.

                You'll get nowhere with Leona bashing, we're all far too proud

                Boyfriend got to #11, and was actually properly big at the time. Then they gave up. So what do you all expect to happen...

                    Wasn't the album just released then Boyfriend came out after...I remember the release being really random anyway.

                    Boyfriend did quite well, they should've followed it up with another single.

                    I don't know what this guy is on about either, Jessica's career is hardly overwhelmingly successful at the moment.

                      Per MonicaMania, Ash is hard at work!

                      Pop star Ashlee Simpson checked in with her fans and said that she’s currently working on her upcoming 3rd album, and it will be more soulful than her previous records. I bet that’s a good sign of things to come cuz her sister Jessica also tried the soulful route for her last album “A Public Affair” and hooked up with R&B masterminds like Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (Chante Moore, Deborah Cox), Johnta Austin (Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey) and Corey Rooney (Jennifer Lopez, Toni Braxton). I wonder whom Ashlee will hook up with for this album, but hopefully she won’t ditch longtime partners, producer John Shanks (Katharine McPhee, Michelle Branch) and songwriter Kara Dioguardi (Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson), as they were responsible for all of Simpson’s hits and they have great chemistry in the studio!

                          Someone make a petition to make "Invisible" a bonus track on the new album? I'm so annoyed "I Am Me" didn't get re-released..."Invisible" rules!!

                            Invisible is class, hopefully it will get featured on the new album with the video on CD/DVD.

                            Roll on the new album, I was listening to Pieces Of Me the other day and it reminded me of how great of a debut she had.

                              The Cure frontman Robert Smith has teamed up with singer Ashlee Simpson for a collaboration on her new album.

                              The as-yet-untitled album is the follow up to 2005's I Am Me.

                              Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz denied any involvement in putting the unusual pair together, even though both of them are his personal friends.

                              He said: "I doubt I had anything to do with it, 'cause they were friends since she was performing in Chicago. But I definitely only have good things to say about Ash--I think the collaboration could be great."

                              Simpson is also known to be working with Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley, Chad Hugo from the Neptunes, and John Legend, reports Entertainment Weekly.
                              They call it the Church of Hot Addiction

                                I'm looking forward to some new Ashlee music. I have her albums and I must say they are fantastic.

                                The collaborations on this new album seem pretty exciting!

                                        Per MTV News:

                                        Ever since he showed up for her last "Chicago" performance in London's West End, Ashlee Simpson has said she's dying to work with Robert Smith of the Cure. But he's not the only name on the list of collaborators for her third album — the singer has been hard at work writing songs with Timbaland, John Legend, Kenna and Chad Hugo of the Neptunes, a source close to the project told MTV News. If that list sounds unusual to you, it should — Ashlee is going for a more "soulful" sound on her new album, she told Cosmopolitan for the mag's June cover story, and has been listening to a lot of India.Arie, Tori Amos and Fiona Apple for inspiration. "This record is not like, 'I didn't steal your boyfriend' or anything like that," she told Cosmo. "But who knows what's going to happen in the next few months. I'll probably have my heart broken and then end up with one of those kinds of songs on there." Don't count on it, though. "I'm in a stronger place now," Simpson insisted. "I'm coming into my womanhood, and it's changing my music." ...

                                          Gee, the girl has great taste.

                                          I'm sick of everybody and their mom working with Timbaland. :evil:

                                              I like Ashlee but her 2nd album 'I Am Me' should have had more singles released off of it over here in the Uk and Ireland! Cannot wait it should be good.. and yes invisible was a really good song!
