The Kooks' Luke Pritchard admits he wrote new track in airplane toilet
Singer spent two hours in a plane bog penning 'Time Above The Earth'
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.
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.
