Melanie Martinez’s next album will feature an accompanying movie
Check out what she said about the new album, along with the upcoming video for "Mad Hatter."
Cry Baby did tremendously well debuting at No. 1 on the Alternative Albums chart, No. 5 on the Top Albums chart and No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart. It was also certified platinum in March and was one of only eight debut albums released in 2015 to receive platinum certification.
There's only one song from the album that hasn't received it's accompanying video yet, but Martinez revealed what we might be able to expect from the highly-anticipated video for "Mad Hatter."
“It’s a lot of CGI animation stuff,” said Martinez, “so right now they’re working on the effects and hopefully I’ll be able to put that out by end of September.”
One thing we definitely loved about Cry Baby is how every song from the record featured it's own accompanying video, but Martinez revealed that her second album will feature even more than that. There's actually going to be a movie which will feature every second from her sophomore album.
“It’s all of the videos together of the next record, all thirteen, with dialogue and whatnot in between connecting all of them together. and I’m directing it and writing it and styling it and doing the makeup," said Martinez.
We are so READY for this movie, especially with Martinez being in control of every aspect of the movie, and even better, we may not to have wait very long to see it. Martinez told Billboard that she's finished working on the main tracks for the album and is now working on the bonus tracks.
