Luke Pritchard and the band are in the studio now

The Kooks have entered the studio to begin work on their second album, NME can exclusively reveal.

Luke Pritchard and his band are currently recording with Tony Hoffer, the man who produced their debut album ‘Inside In/Inside Out’.

Pritchard told NME.COM that he has high expectations for the album, and hopes it will be a big hit.

“I want this album to be big,” he said. “I’ve got an ego – I want the album to do well. I want our singles to come on the radio and for people to have their heads blown off by them.”

Pritchard revealed that the band have “80 or 90” songs written and ready to record. Songs likely to make the final album tracklisting are ‘Do You Wanna Make Love To Me’, ‘Sway’, ‘See The Sun’ and ‘Hard To Bear’.

The band plan to release the new album in February. See this week’s NME for more from Pritchard about the recording of the album.
