CSS reveal all about new album

Albums Of 2008: Lovefoxxx reveals her band's new set will be out soon

CSS have revealed all about their forthcoming new album.

The band have headed back home to Sao Paulo to record the follow-up to their 2006 self-titled debut album.

Speaking to NME.COM halfway through recording the album, the band revealed that they are moving away from their trademark electronic sound and are focused on making a more organic record.

“We’ve moved on from that”, singer Lovefoxxx explained. “It sounds very different to that now. It sounds rawer and more live. Our last album sounded more held back than we wanted.

“The thing is, that if we’re in Brazil we’re going to be really quiet and it’s away from people trying to reach us,” the singer continued, explaining why the band decided to record in the South American country.

“I wouldn’t mind recording in London“, she added, “but I think it was better to record in Brazil.”

CSS have confirmed that the record will be hitting shelves shortly. “We want to release the album quite soon,” Lovefoxxx said. “It’s never really worked before with producers and it’s taken too long. We need to work fast to deliver the album.”
