Kasabian working on ‘Pink Floyd sounding’ new album

Tom Meighan admits that they've already written most of it

Kasabian have revealed that they’re working on a Pink Floyd-sounding new album.

The follow-up to this year’s ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’, frontman Tom Meighan revealed they’ve already got a selection of “beautiful” new tracks.

“[Guitarist] Sergio [Pizzorno]’s got a body of work already, its very ‘Dark Side Of The Moon‘, Pink Floyd,” Meighan told internet radio station Dabbl.co.uk. “[It’s] very essential and very beautiful, piano-based songs that sound beautiful and we’re going to really grunge them up a bit,” he added.

Although, the Leicester band are busy working on their new album, Meighan admitted that it would be some time before they look at heading into the studio, because of the group’s touring commitments.

“We’re nearly there,” he explained. “But we’ve just got to go and take ‘West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum’ round the world and show it to people,” he added.

Meanwhile, Kasabian have just been announced as headliners at next year’s T In The Park.
