Surprise Grammy winner Esperanza Spalding, who beat out Justin Bieber for the Best New Artist award, is planning ahead.
Spalding told Billboard.com that she'll enter the studio during May to record Radio Music Society, which is a "more upbeat and more sort of energetic" collection of tunes that was conceived at the same time as Chamber Music Society, her current album. "Originally I planned to release a double record, but that didn't work. The two (approaches) really couldn't be reconciled," Spalding said. "So it became two different records. I just decided I wanted to do Chamber Music first and then focus on Radio Music."
Radio Music Society will combine Spalding's original compositions with covers of songs by the Beach Boys and Wayne Shorter.
