Broken Bells at Glastonbury: ‘We’ll take a break before second album’ – video

Danger Mouse and James Mercer promise they will return

Broken Bells say they are to take their time before recording their second album, in order to work on “different things”.

The duo – Danger Mouse and The Shins frontman James Mercer – spoke to NME about their future while at Glastonbury this weekend, where they played the Park Stage. Watch the video interview on the right of your screen now.

“I think we are going to do different things before we do another [Broken Bells album],” Danger Mouse explained. “We spent the last two years mostly with just Broken Bells stuff, so it would be great to have other things to do for a while.”


With Mercer nodding in agreement, Danger Mouse reaffirmed that the duo will “definitely” return in the future.

“We’ve already started out some new songs that we really like for the new album, but the schedule’s gonna take a little while before it comes out.”
