Maybe jumping the gun, but since there should be an album number 4, here's the first post of the year (her instagram story) of Haley in a studio w/ Rob Kleiner and Anders Grahne

Very cool news! Smile

Hoping that if there is indeed an album 4 this year that she ends up working with some different writers... Nothing against Rob (They've written so many gems together!) of course, but a little variety is cool too.

Any predictions on what album #4's theme could be?
To me this sounds funk influenced. Like talkin about. Haley will probably go the retro funk pop she route she did on better/listem up.. I prefer she changed it up a bit and does more contemporary pop/alternative rock. Listen was a good example of a current song she can tackle. I hope she switches it up with producers too. Its good to have different hands in the mix. Maybe a hit single will come out of it.
If she does an Album 4 this year, I would hope she considers looking to Amy Winehouse, upbeat Adele, Norah Jones, and some KT Tunstall. Songs and styles that are all in her wheelhouse--that she can knock out of the park. A few covers are OK too---
I'm not sure Better was afforded it's due, we were so flush w/ even getting a new album after years of waiting since Listen Up! Then suddenly in less than a year, we have WTS to listen to.... But on it's own, minus any connections, Better is a really great album.

I've said before, I want more 'Rocker' Haley....we got a little taste of that in Better, even more so when she brought the songs from that album to a live performance, there's a sharper edge than what we had previously heard on Listen Up! (A master piece debut on it's own)... There was so much originality in the songs, each w/ it's own personality. Even more so than Listen Up! I think Better will grow finer w/ time, it bares repeating, Better, is the most 'Haley' thing that Haley has done, encapsulates her talent and personality.

My logical mind thinks Haley + Concord + HQ production = something classical, Jazz, blues, high brow kind of stuff.

But if I had a say, I'd tell Haley, more of that "Better" stuff.... give us the Haley spice, mixture of classic, rock, jazz, fusion, funk, even a sprinkle of disco... That is and has always been Haley, that's what I get from listen to Better....Yeah, Haley, more of that original music, Grade A, Haley 'Better' Stuff Cool

I feel a lot of what you're 'talkin about' here : )

What was odd for me was that when Better was first released I didn't entirely have my mind open to it ... so much so that I had only listened to it a couple times before I saw Haley on the Better tour.

I think it was only just a matter of personal distraction away from music at the time but , not sure.

I do think that the Better songs were really incredible with both the with Luttrell Band, and the with the Dylan and company band with William Rae in the linchpin drum role on both. Guess I should name all the musicians because I can't know who was bringing what .. great bass playing etc.

It's not that anything was missing on the Better studio album,
... and I'm kind of a "Jam band" guy so I've got a bias toward live stuff over studio stuff,

... still, I wonder if that groove a live group gets working together and their musicians knack for Haley's sensibilities inspires a bit more edge in Haley than other but different good things that happen in the studio with pros?

It's all speculation from me - not expertise and others know better.. most especially the star herself ! - so many routes to follow that all can go great places... just think if it is a rocker direction that making new music with people who've been traveling with you live might have it's own edgy flavor ?
