AceShowbiz - Her tour and performance at the Pittsburgh Pride aren't the only things Iggy Azalea needs to axe. The Australian raptress revealed in Twitter exchanges with fans on Thursday, June 11 that she had also entirely scrapped the songs she'd done for her anticipated sophomore album.
"I scraped an entire 6 months of work and started totally new," she said. Responding to a fan who asked her if she's aiming for a completely different sound, she explained, "Its too early to tell yet exactly how things will sound overall, but im not looking to abandon my identity."

"I'm very focused on incorporating some of the sounds i played with on mixtapes," she told another fan. "I feel like sonically those songs still reflect a big part of me that got overlooked on my album production and i want to make sure its reflected in my new stuff."
Iggy's new album is currently scheduled for release early next year. It will come as the follow-up to last year's "The New Classic" which spawned several hit singles including "Fancy" that spent multiple weeks at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100.
Two weeks ago, Iggy announced that she'd canceled all dates on her previously-delayed tour. Earlier this week, she finally dropped out of the Pittsburgh Pride following weeks of backlash from numerous people who were offended by some homophobic comments she made in the past.
