He told the Guardian recently that he may not make another album, but could be going toward composing a novel soon.
But rest assured, he’s still a musician – he was just in the studio with Alicia Keys, Pharrell and Jay-Z – and will continue to make music.
“This isn’t a faux retirement,” he said. “It’s no bullsh-t. I was just making music yesterday. But I do think – it would be f–king legendary if I just made Channel Orange last year, then put out a best-selling novel next year, then, you know, designed an arena in Stockholm in 2014! I don’t know! You just do what you can and you have as much fun as possible, and love your life as much as you can despite the bullshit and all the expectations and sh-t.”
He ain’t never lied. One jam session with Alicia in the studio turned into a whole track entitled “One Thing.”
“I really love [the song], because it’s this story about this relationship,” she said. “It starts out on the train and by the end of the song you figure out who I got on that train. And how there’s one thing you’re searching for and what happens in that story.”
