Lindsay Lohan Threatens To Release New LP
Get ready! '00s pop queen Lindsay Lohan will release another album.

Lindsay Lohan got social media buzzing in June when she casually announced that she was going to release a third album during a Mean Girls live chat. The ’00s pop queen had one caveat — before she returns, she wants to give her little sister a chance to shine. Today (August 23), we finally learn a little more about Aliana Lohan’s new music via a Cosmopolitan profile. While she refuses to name her collaborators, the 22-year-old describes her new sound as “western emo.”

The budding singer, who released a holiday LP way back in 2006, goes on to cite Nancy Sinatra and Johnny Cash as inspirations. Which is basically the template for every dark-pop diva in a post-Lana Del Rey world. However, her infamous sister is confident she has what it takes. “My sister is signed to EMI,” Lindsay revealed. “She’s recording a record, and out of respect for her and her true career choice — which is all she wants to do is make music, and her voice is like… Etta James meets Adele; I want to respect her in that lane and stay in my lane.”

Aliana’s 2008 stand-alone single “All The Way Around” is a guilty pleasure of mine, so I’m cautiously optimistic about this new era. She certainly has the look to pull off moody, country-tinged pop. Time will tell, however, if she has the songs and the voice. Read the full profile here.
