Neil Diamond and Rick Rubin team up for new album

Pair will collaborate for the third time

Neil Diamond and Rick Rubin team up for new album
Neil Diamond is set to team up with producer Rick Rubin again, as they prepare to work on Diamond's new album.

The pair have reportedly arranged to meet on January 12 to discuss the concept of the album, the follow-up to this year's 'Home After Dark'.

"I told (Rubin) I want to start writing on the 12th," Diamond told [url= Billboard]Billboard[/url]. "He said, 'Why don't you not start writing and let's sit down and talk about what the concept is and what we're gonna do.' I said, 'Good idea,' so we'll meet on the 12th and go from there."

He also revealed that the pair will take a different approach to the album than they had on 'Home Before Dark' and their first collaboration '12 Songs'.

Meanwhile, a DVD of his current 'Home After Dark' tour is set to be released next year. The show will also be aired as a television special, and Diamond reckons it captures the live experience very well.

"I'm very pleased with it. I've always felt you could never really replicate the experience of being at a concert, but this film comes as close to replicating it as anything I've ever seen," he said.
