Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle has revealed that the California act are working on a new LP, nine years and four months after their last.
Grandaddy recorded fourth record ‘Just Like The Fambly Cat’ after announcing they were to split exclusively through NME in January 2006, but have been back together for occasional live shows since early 2012.
At the time of the split, Lytle told NME: “It was inevitable… On one hand our stubbornness has paid off, but on the other hand refusing to buy into the way things are traditionally supposed to be done has made things worse for us… The realistic part is it hasn’t proved to be a huge money-making venture for a lot of guys in the band.”
This evening (September 2), though, Lytle tweeted that he’s working on the latest LP, with a ‘note to self’ reminder on recording techniques:
While tracking new GD LP….need to remind myself no song on sophtware slump had more than 20 tracks….
16 on the average!

Lytle has since confirmed that the tweet is a reference to Grandaddy. The Oregon based frontman most recently released a record with Aaron Espinoza of Earlimart, a soundtrack to a distance running film entitled ‘This Is Your Day’.
