Metronomy songwriter and frontman Joe Mount has said he thinks he has "two more albums" left in him.

Speaking with The Guardian, Mount said that he was surprised at how "viable" being a musician was, and guessed that he would make two more albums as Metronomy, before becoming a record producer, even though he thinks every Metronomy record will be his last. He commented:

"I imagine that one day I will stop doing this and be a producer, I can see that. But with every record, I'm always surprised by the reality of the situation. With every record, I'm so surprised by how viable being a musician is, that I'm like, well, I can put off this idea that I have to become a producer." He added: "I now think I've probably got two more albums left in me."

Metronomy recently unveiled their new album 'Love Letters' at an intimate show in Brighton. The band played almost all of their fourth LP in public for the very first time at The Old Market venue on January 29, including the singles 'I'm Aquarius' and the album's title track, which premiered on SoundCloud. The show was Metronomy's first since finishing up the 2012 festival season in Berlin in September of that year. 'Love Letters' is set for release on March 10.
