After an eight-year hiatus the band returned with their fifth album, ‘Not Your Kind Of People’, earlier this year, but have now claimed that album number six is already being prepared for a 2013 release.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, drummer Butch Vig explained: “The momentum has already begun. We’re going to do some recording in January, early February.”
Singer Shirley Manson added: ‘The good thing now is we don’t even need to think in terms of an album, so we’re just thinking in terms of new music, which actually really works in our favour. Historically, we’ve worked slow because we’ve toured so much – we go and spend a year making a record, then we go back out on the road. Now we realise we can do two or three tracks, release these tracks and then go on the road.’
The band’s last LP was released independently and has opened up the band’s creativity as they ‘actually have the guts to not care anymore’. The band will head into the studio after the new year before completing their Australia tour.
