Jessica Simpson Is (Still) Working On Her 8th Album
Jessica Simpson has been chipping away at her 8th LP since at least 2015. It looked like she was making serious progress last year when she shared a country-tinged demo, but it seems the much-missed diva is still hard at work on the opus. “Writing songs is a gift and so was yesterday with [Jessica],” Nashville singer/songwriter Annie Bosko captioned a studio pic. “This was after 10 hrs in the studio which is a small indication of her work ethic which isn’t surprising seeing as that she’s built a FEMPIRE.” Grammy-winning producer John Shanks is credited as the photographer.
“I have no record deal,” the 37-year-old admitted in a TV interview last year. “I am my own record deal, which is so empowering to say. Nobody has to tell me what to look like, nobody has to tell me what music sounds good.” While it’s still too early to predict, it looks like Jessica is headed in an earthier, more stripped-back direction than her ’00s hey-day given the aforementioned demo and her choice of collaborators. (Remember she has also written with Linda Perry). Fingers crossed we get something this year — there’s only so many times you can play A Public Affair!

Most importantly, she’s a great human being. Excited for her new music and just so y’all know Whole Foods found tuna in chicken salad⚡️🍗♥️📸 @john_shanks
