A new song purportedly set to feature on Dr. Dre‘s new album ‘Detox’ has appeared online. The track, which is titled ‘Turn Me On’, began circulating on blogs and file-sharing websites on Monday (August 16). It is the second seemingly unfinished song to leak from ‘Detox’ in recent months. In June, the Jay-Z-featuring ‘Under Pressure’ also appeared online.
‘Detox’ is Dr Dre’s long-awaited follow-up to his 1999 album, ‘2001’, and is expected to arrive later this year, although no official release date has been set.
Dr. Dre recently revealed that he was also working on an instrumental hip-hop album about the planets that make up the solar system. The veteran producer said he had been thinking about the record for “a long time” and that he wanted to call it ‘The Planets’.
“It’s just my interpretation of what each planet sounds like,” he said in an interview with Vibe magazine. “I’m gonna go off on that. Just all instrumental. I’ve been studying the planets and learning the personalities of each planet.”
Dr Dre didn’t unveil a release date for that project, but said he was working on the album during spare time and that it would feature special surround sound.
