Foster The People’s Mark Foster: ‘Our next album will be less digital’ – video

Singer tells NME fans should expect to see some new material by the end of 2012

Foster The People frontman Mark Foster has told NME his band plan to record a new album later this year.

The singer said he plans to head into the studio to record the follow up to their 2011 debut ‘Torches’ once they finish touring in an interview you can watch by clicking above.

Although he did say a new record is unlikely to surface this year, the band are hoping to release a single by the end of 2012.


Foster said:

Hopefully we’ll have a song or two out by the end of the year. I’d like to get the album done pretty quickly but we’re not going to put something out until its ready. I’d say in 2013 it’ll be out.

He also said that he wants Foster The People‘s sound on the next record to move on.

The singer explained: “I’d love to make a more analogue record and not so digital but at the same time still modern. I think it will be an evolution of the sound we’ve created so far.”

The band are due to play their largest UK gigs so far at London’s O2 Academy Brixton in April.
