Foster The People's Mark Foster has discussed the band's second album, 'Supermodel', saying he was "angry" when he wrote it.

Speaking inside this week's NME, which is on newsstands or available digitally now, Foster said: "I look back at some songs now and think, 'Wow, I was really angry when I wrote that!'"

Foster also explains that the lyrics for the record were written after all the music was finished. "It's like a time capsule of thoughts and ideas and the things I was struggling with at the time," he commented. He added that the record "retains the identity" of the group from their first LP. "There are songs that act as a bridge that fans of the first record will grab onto, but also songs that show a side that wasn't there at all," says Foster.

The album was recorded with producer Paul Epworth in a riad studio in Morocco as well as in Los Angeles and follows the band's debut 'Torches', which was released in 2011. In terms of lyrical themes on the record, Foster previously explained to NME: "One of the biggest themes is consumerism and the ugly side of capitalism".

The 'Supermodel' tracklisting is:

'Are You What You Want to Be'
'Ask Yourself'
'Coming of Age'
'Nevermind'
'The Angelic Welcome of Mr. Jones'
'Best Friend'
'A Beginner's Guide to Destroying the Moon'
'Goats In Trees'
'The Truth'
'Fire Escape'
'Tabloid Super Junky'
