La Roux‘s Elly Jackson has revealed that she is writing her new album with an “established” indie band.
White Lies‘ spokesperson could not confirm or deny whether they were involved yet.
Speaking of the hook-up, Jackson said: “I’ve been writing with some friends from another band, but I wont say who they are.” She added that the band are “established, but not like Kings Of Leon-established or anything…”
Meanwhile, Jackson also said she is feeling the pressure to write an album that will be as successful as her band’s 2009 debut. “I know I’m not going to stop writing until we’ve got songs that can compete on the same level as ‘In For The Kill’ and ‘Bulletproof’,” she explained.
The issue previews the 60 most exciting albums of 2011, also featuring The Strokes, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, Beady Eye, Bombay Bicycle Club, Wild Beasts and 52 other acts, with in-the-studio reports and photos.
