Earlier this month, Nita spoke to Terrie Carr from Morristown, New Jersey radio station 105.5WDHA on the progress of writing and recording sessions for its 2018 sequel “Controlled Chaos” solo debut. She said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “The recording of the album is almost finished. We are just waiting for a few singers. The guitars are finished, the drums, the bass – everything is finished.
“It’s my first time collaborating with singers on anything, so it’s a bit of a waiting game – it tests my patience a bit – but it’s worth it in the end,” said she continued.
“We’re going to do half and half – so six instrumental tracks and six guest vocal tracks.”
In a separate interview with “The Mistress Carrie Podcast”, Nita said of his decision to make the next LP “half vocals and half instrumentals”: I felt, and the label and everyone agreed, that it’s still important for me to keep my guitarist identity and not to branch out too much and go, ‘Okay, well, now they’re just guests.’ Leave me a little bit more of what makes me who I am, which is the instrumental shred. And the instrumental pieces that I wrote on this record are, I think, better than anything I did on the first — definitely more… I don’t know if it could be more emotional but it’s very emotional pieces of music and I think a little better crafted this time around So I think all the songs in general are more well thought out, better put together this time around. And I have some of my absolute favorites [singers guesting on it]. I have three amazing female singers on this album so far. And there’s still a few things to figure out [to be determined]. And then we should be ready to go out next spring.”
In October, Nita share “Dead Inside”, his first new music since the release of his critically acclaimed debut solo album “Controlled Chaos” in 2018. The track is his very first solo collaboration with a singer, David Draiman, leader of grammys-nominated rock icons DISTURBED.
