The anti-folk singer heads to the country to record
The rocker has spoken about the sessions for his forthcoming album, ‘Love, Ire And Song’.
The singer-songwriter is also employing some famous friends for some vocal back-up.
He said: “I’ve written a barber shop harmony for The Holloways to do, it’s going to be such good fun. It’s going to take forever to piece it together, it’ll be great.”
While only half-recorded, Turner told NME.COM that the sessions are going well.
“It’s been the most awesome recording session ever,” he said. “Basically, I found this barn conversion down in Hampshire, near to where I grew up, and we built the studio in there. It’s in the middle of nowhere, our neighbours were horses! It was such a cool place to record.”
Turner also explained how the record differs from his last, this year’s ‘Sleep Is For The Week’.
He admitted: “It’s sounding much more English folk than American folk which I’m pleased about. Then there are other songs that are a little more straight up powerpop, like The Lemonheads. It’s a more serious record too – I think I’ve written enough songs about getting wasted!”
‘Love, Ire And Song’ is set to be released sometime in the first half of 2008.
