Speaking previously about the record, Cook said: “It’s quite different from the last few because music has moved on a lot in the last few years. Basically, I’m just experimenting with different sounds and trying not to sound like classic Fatboy.
“Damon Albarn sings on one track, [/a] sings on another and Lateef from [a] has done some great stuff.
“The last album had a lot of house on it and this is getting back to my hip-hop roots more. Basically, I’m just not turned on by house music much at the moment. It’s going through a fallow period and I think we need another Daft Punk.”
