Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno: ‘A spirit came down and wrote our new album’ – video

Band tell NME about the making of their fourth studio album

Kasabian‘s Serge Pizzorno has said he’s sure “a spirit” has written the band’s fourth album, because he feels like he “wasn’t even there.”

The band are currently putting the finishing touches to the follow-up to 2009’s ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’, which will be released before the end of 2011.

Speaking to NME in a video which you can see at the top of your screen, the guitarist said how the album was written: “I feel like I wasn’t even there, like a spirit came down and took over, I’d just be milling about and I’d wake up in the morning and go ‘Who’s done that?’ I really feel like a spirit wrote the album.”

Bassist Chris Edwards also revealed that the band have used songs that didn’t make the cut for ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’. He said: “Some of the ones that didn’t make it onto ‘West Ryder’ have become big songs on the new album.”

The band are set to preview new material during their headline set at the Isle Of Wight Festival next weekend (June 12).
