Listen to Missy Elliott on iHeartRadio

Missy Elliott is assuring fans that new music from her is "coming," but she isn't telling anyone when.

In an interview with Yahoo!'s "The Yo Show," Missy explained she hasn't released a solo album since 2005 because she wanted to give her brain a chance to "refresh."

When she creates an album, Missy says "it's gotta be special" because she doesn't "just throw out microwave records." Because she knows the expectations from her fans are high, she wants to wait until she's properly inspired and can give 100%.

In 2012 Missy released a pair of singles produced by Timbaland. Her next album is slated to be titled Block Party, but doesn't have a release date.
