Refusing the term 'back', Usher assures fans that an album that will follow 'Confessions' (2004), is on the way. "I'm working on my album. It'll be out, I'm not sure when," the R&B singer said in a phone interview.
It was previously reported that his album would be titled 'Regret' and is coming out this November, but there has been no official confirmation to this. One thing for sure, he has been working on the album with producer Jermaine Dupri, T-Pain, Jay-Z and Robin Thicke among others.
Referring to his affiliate Dr. Dre who has been working on an album called 'Detox' for 3 years, Usher said, "I'm not doing the Dr. Dre to y'all. I'm not doing the Detox. I'm on my way. I'm actually just about finished. I've been working on it all this year amongst all the other things I've been doing."
Apparently one or two things that has prevented the album from coming out soon is his duty on personal issues. "It's been a somewhat tumultuous year for me," he said. "But you go through something to get to something. I'm a married man with a baby on the way, you gotta love that. That's the next major step. A lot of what I plan to offer with this album is kinda standing in this spot. The king's back. I ain't gonna say 'back,' I never left."
'Confessions' was well sold over 9 million copies in U.S. alone. Usher married his pregnant girlfriend Tameka Foster in August.
