(Entertainment Weekly) – Rihanna’s next album has come to us in bits and pieces: First, there was the raw, acoustic beauty “FourFiveSeconds” with Kanye West and Paul McCartney, then she bestowed upon us some drool-worthy snippets of a song called “Higher” on Instagram. Her new track “American Oxygen” is the March Madness theme.

Now, the Barbadian singer has opened up about the rest of the Kanye-produced album. “I’ve made a lot of songs that are just really, really big,” she says in a new MTV interview. But with this album, Rihanna says she wanted to focus on “things that felt real, that felt soulful, that felt forever, that I could perform in 15 years.”

It turns out she’s doing this to protect her future self from the embarrassment she feels about her older songs now: “I find that when I get on stage now, I don’t want to perform a lot of my songs because they don’t feel like me. So I want to make songs that are timeless.” Don’t worry, Ri, we still listen to “Umbrella.”
