Example: ‘I’m doing impressions of Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters on my new album’

Rapper says every track on the follow-up to 'Playing In The Shadows has 'huge guitar riffs'

Example has said his new album will see him doing ”impressions of Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters”.

The rapper, who has spent the last few months working on the follow-up to his 2011 album ‘Playing In The Shadows’, has said he is embracing rock on his fourth record and that every track has got “huge guitar riffs”.

He told Capital FM: “It’s going to be a rock album but produced electronically – every track’s got huge guitar riffs. I’m pretty much singing and trying to do impressions of Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters.”

The rapper also said that he hoped to have the album ready to release in October or November of this year, which would be just over one year on from the release of ‘Playing In The Shadows’.

Example is currently touring the UK and plays a huge outdoor at Leeds’ Millennium Square tomorrow (May 5).
