Beyonce may release two albums in 2013

So, songwriter Ryan Tedder, also of US band OneRepublic, has revealed he has been working with a post-baby Beyonce on a double album (hers, not his), seemingly set for tentative release in 2013.

Tedder, who composed ‘Halo’ for Beyonce’s 2008 double LP ‘I Am… Sasha Fierce’, says this of the R&B star’s potential next moves: “The conversations about her next album literally just started and there [are] two projects happening. All I can say is you kind of feed her the best that you have and she’s this phenomenal filter and she takes it all in”.

He continues: “She’s not interested in 2012, [she’s interested in] what’s [going to sound good for] 2013. Without question she steers the ship. [With] Beyonce, you just let her go, she’s ridiculous, she’s the best”.

As for the inspiration behind the new records, Tedder claims he has already suggested to Bey that she might like to write about the miracle of motherhood. “I would say that goes without saying”, he adds.

This Ryan Tedder character does say a lot of things, though, which recently include that he has collaborated with both Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks. He’s so very in demand, that Tedder. Or so he says.
