Kele names new tracks
Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke has revealed a brace of song titles that will be featured on the band’s as-yet-untitled second album.
The follow up to NME’s album of year of 2005, ‘Silent Alarm’, will feature ’Waiting For The 7.18’, ’Uniform’, ’Perfect Teens’(formerly known as ’Machine’), ’England’ (formerly known as ’Blue Moon’) and ’Song For Clay’ (formerly known as ’Merge On The Freeway’).
The band have also recorded the songs ’Kreuzberg’ and ’Cells Shaped Like Stars’, though they may may not be included on the finished album.
Of the album’s overall theme and possible title Okereke said: “It’s really, to me, very much an album about living in the city and I think a lot of the themes resonating on the record are pretty much about everyday living in the metropolis. So I guess the title’s really gonna represent that for me.”
As previously reported by NME.COM, the band are working with producer Jacknife Lee.
On picking Lee over ’Silent Alarm’ producer Paul Epworth Okereke told Pitchfork: “I think Paul’s a great guy, a great producer but it probably wouldn’t have done us any favours working with the same producer two albums in a row. We’re trying to work with different people, it gives you different aspects to your sound, which is really crucial.”
