The Horrors' Josh Hayward has said that "everything's up in the air again" after they pushed back the release of their new album until 2014.

The band were set to release the follow-up to 'Skying' in autumn of this year, but told NME in July that they had decided to put out the album next year instead. Now, talking to Drowned In Sound, Hayward said that the delay meant that they may write another batch of new songs for the LP.

"Given more time, and our itchy fingerness, we'll probably carry on writing more songs for it," he said. "We had quite a long time away from it so there's no harm in going back in and looking over the album again to see if there's anything we could do differently. The album was very us at that moment. Now it's been put back there's a good chance we will end up wanting to change it because we're constantly having new ideas and trying different things."

Asked if they had decided on a tracklisting, meanwhile, he replied: "We'd agreed on the final tracklisting if the album was going to be released in September. Now it's not everything's up in the air again. It's all quite exciting really."

Hayward also said that the band had not chosen a title for the LP yet but hoped to release it in "February or March next year", while he jokingly described it as having "bigger arms" compared to their previous work.

The album will be the band's fourth LP and the follow-up to 2011's 'Skying'. At the end of last year, they put out a remix album of 'Skying', titled 'Higher'. Spanning over four 12" vinyl, two CDs and a DVD, the project features a range of artists from Blanck Mass to Andy Blake, Cherrystones, Chris Watson, Seahawks and JTC.

The Horrors have already put in a number of festival appearances this summer, including a headline slot on The Park Stage at Glastonbury and Truck Festival, plus appearances at Green Man and Manchester's Parklife.
