During a recent interview with New York’s Fresh 102.7, Martin said he’s been working in the studio on new material for RiRi. “I don’t think she even asked, I just said, ‘please can I try something?’” he said.

"We knew we wanted to make this thing called Ghost Stories, and then make something else,” he said. "We have just an idea and then we're gonna go on tour after that.”
