Eve Rocking With Dre

New album falls on the heels of clothing line, sitcom

October 8, 2003 12:00 AM ET

This summer, Eve went from wrapping Barbershop 2 to the set of her new sitcom, Eve, on to the launch of her clothing line, Fetish, and then to the studio with Dr. Dre to start work on her fourth album. "Everything happened at once," she says. "But I'm having the best time."

The new set will be the follow-up to 2002's Eve-olution and the third album on which she's worked with Dre, who's executive producing. "He brings the best out of me," Eve says. "I want to go in and experiment and really have fun."

Experimenting could lead the two in a new direction. "It will still be hip-hop but probably more rock," Eve says. "Kind of fusing both of them together and just doing a different kind of music."

Eventually, Eve says, she wants to get a live band, "come up with songs and sit around and come up with the right melodies and chords. I would love to do that."

Eve will take a break from recording this month to shoot new episodes of her sitcom. Information on how to obtain free tickets for a taping can be found at evefansonly.com.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
