Rowland recently sat down with ‘Vogue Australia’ for a revealing new interview where she dishes on the direction of her new album, the Destiny’s Child reunion at Coachella, growing up with Beyoncé, and much more.
Sharing much more than ever before on her forthcoming album, Kelly discusses her break from music and the emotions behind everything that happened in her personal life since her last album Talk A Good Game. Her experiences with being a mother and losing her mother all in the span of a month impacted her the most.
“It hit a switch in me about the greatness and beauty, the quickness and simplicity of life. People just want to be happy,” explains Rowland. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music!” Adding: “I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”
When Rowland returns to LA she will go into the studio and finish it, and there will be collaborations. “I’ve been working with Syd from The Internet on one record,” she reveals.
Kelly brought her own serious fire with the Destiny’s Child reunion at Coachella in April. “Coachella was so much fun. The funny thing is, I told Delta [Goodrem]. I think she was the only person I told, maybe Joe [Jonas] … as I thought he might be there. Coachella was so much fun. The best part was ‘the secret,’ then seeing people’s reaction when it was such a surprise.”
“We rehearsed like crazy. I would go back to LA and we would be in rehearsals. They were intense. It was so much fun,” she continues. “When we finished I was sad, thank God Michelle and Bey were still in town, so I could still see them. It spoiled me all the time we were able to spend together, but that creative time is pretty remarkable when we are together. It really is. What a blessing, right? And we still love each other. We were laughing at that one day. We were getting ready, but our kids were running around. That’s the fun part; it’s the sweetest thing: they are going to be friends, because we are all so close. Coachella was awesome.”
