Speaking to 1X, Anderson .Paak has said that Dr. Dre is working on new music. He said: "He's working right now, doing a lot of work right now, I can't really speak on it. It was so quick [recording with Dre], 80/90 percent of what I did was used and then it was out. That's not usually the case with Dre. A lot of people who work with Dre, you're lucky if anything sees the light of day. It was a blessing to have all that stuff go to market at the pace it did. It's cool to be able to work with him at this place in his career when he's just ready to go."
Kamasi Washington spoke to Rolling Stone about the follow-up to last year's brilliant, The Epic, saying: "In my mind, I have plans for more large-ensemble stuff: doing some brass ensembles and not just things with the choir. … It's hard to say exactly; it's all in my head right now. … I've been messing around with recording myself over and over again. Like a 32-piece saxophone thing. Just for a demo, for a song. And I'm like, 'Hey, that sounds cool. Maybe it's something I want to do for real.'"

Bjork is currently working on new music according to Tri Angle records and collaborations, The Haxan Cloak. Taking to Instagram, they said:
Just wanted to get something off my chest, because it's been irritating me - I'm constantly being asked if Bjork is in charge of her records. Simple answer; yes. She is the boss. 100 percent. She writes, produces, composes, sings. She might bring people in to facilitate her vision, but first and foremost it is HER vision. Guys (and it's always guys) need to understand this. She needs no one. How much incredible music does one woman have to release until people cut this crap? And yes, her new material is going to blow you all away. Cheers.
