The Kooks frontman Luke Pritchard has revealed that he wrote new track 'Time Above The Earth' in an airplane toilet.

Speaking about the creation of the band's new album 'Junk Of The Heart', which is released on Monday (September 12), Pritchard admitted he had spent a full two hours in a toilet onboard a plane while traveling to New York in order to finish the track.

He told The Sun:

I always take my guitar on flights and I wrote this when I was on a plane to New York. I sneaked in to the toilet for a quite a while to write it ['Time Above The Earth'] and when I came out I thought the air hostesses were going to give me grief, but they were cool, even though I'd be in there for two hours.



Pritchard also spoke about the new influences that the band had taken in on their new album, talking up LCD Soundsystem and Beck. He said:

LCD Soundsystem are one of my favourite bands. We were also influenced by Beck and the way he takes electronics and mixes it with folk and soul.



The Kooks tour the UK next month.
