Kula Shaker are recording their new album on a barge moored on the River Thames in London.
The album is due for release by Columbia in July and has the working title ‘Strange Folk’. They’re currently working on two tracks, ‘Golden Avatar’ and ‘Holy River’ with producer Bob Ezrin.
At the end of last year Kula Shaker travelled to Los Angeles to work with producer Rick Rubin, recording three songs with him, ‘Sound Of Drums’, ‘Sister Breeze’ and ‘Shower Your Love’. They debuted ‘Sound Of Drums’ at a secret show under the name K at the Viper Room earlier this year.
A band spokesman told NME: “We can’t actually say where they’re working because apparently it’s illegal to work where they’re working. It’s all a bit hush-hush for the moment.”
Meanwhile, Kula Shaker played with Andrew Lloyd Webber recently. The band jammed with Webber on a version of ‘Tattva’ at the birthday party of veteran actor Sir John Mills, singer Crispian’s grandfather.
