Poppy has discussed what she's been working on during the pandemic, revealing that she's "doing the last touches" on her new album.

In a new interview with SPIN, Poppy has discussed some of the projects she's been working on during the COVID-19 pandemic, and confirmed that she's finishing up her new album that'll follow January's I Disagree album.

When asked about if she's still cataloguing layers of sounds, which she mentioned to SPIN back in March, Poppy replied, "I still intend on releasing what I was doing in March, but it morphed into something else. I actually have my hand in a couple of projects at the moment. But one of them is about 95 percent done, and I am itching to release that. About a month ago in L.A., I got my touring band together, and we got to record a new album. It was a process I’d never experienced but knew I always wanted to do. It was very organic."

Poppy continued, "I Disagree was written over the span of about a year. It was done in the studio: live guitar and vocals, but everything else in the box. This whole experience and approach was completely new, and the producer is someone I really respect and have wanted to work with for a number of years. I can talk about that at a different point. But I was able to get my band together and learn the songs I wrote in a very confined space and time, about things that are very close to me. We tracked it all live in a room. It has a completely different sonic vibe. We’re doing the last touches on it now."

On whether the pandemic inspired any new songs, Poppy said, "There’s no mention of quarantine or lockdown or any of those things in the songs. I think we all know where we’ve all been for the last nine months. I don’t need to beat people over the head about that - we all know what happened. [laughs] The songs are just very personal to me - they’re about a span of two years."
