Singer/guitarist has two side projects on the go
Snow Patrol‘s Gary Lightbody has revealed that he has two solo side projects on the go.
The singer/guitarist explained that as well as his day job in the million-selling band, he was working on material with producer Jacknife Lee on a record entitled ‘Listen Tank’, plus a country music album named ‘Tired Pony’.
He added: “I don’t know why, there’s just lots of voices on it with me using my vocals as an instrument rather than a guitar. It sounds like some underwater choir.”
Of the country album he said: “I’ve loved country for a long time. I always thought I had a country album in me and it turns out I did.
“I don’t know whether people will dig it or not. It’s just something I wanted to get out of my system.”
Lightbody did not reveal when he planned to release the two albums.
