Usher is giving more details surrounding his upcoming eighth album.

In an interview with MTV News, the 36-year-old crooner reveals that one of reasons he pushed it back is because he “hadn’t put the soul of it in yet.”

“The record company will be shocked, but I didn’t plan on putting out an album this year because I just didn’t feel like I was ready,” said Usher, whose given name is Usher Raymond IV.

“This is a very important and significant album for me. It’s my eighth album, I don’t know if it’s something about that number.”

The singer, who is currently on his UR Experience Tour with August Alsina, DJ Cassidy and Nico & Vinz, adds he’s taking his time.

“I’m approaching it with empathy and appreciation for everything and everyone that has shown support for me throughout all of these years so I want to make sure that it’s true,” he said. “And it truly does represent where I am, but also it makes people feel like they need to move and do something.”

The singer adds that the album could potentially arrive at the “top of the year.”
