LIMP-ING TOWARDS CONCLUSION

The band are picking from just over 30 songs for the final tracklisting...

LIMP BIZKIT star FRED DURST has said the theme of the band’s new album is “less is more”.

The group continue to work on the follow-up to ‘Chocloate Starfish And The Hotdog Flavoured Water’, the first without guitarist Wes Borland.

Currently untitled, it is due for release next year. Durst is picking from just over 30 songs for the final tracklisting.

“This album is about getting touch with yourself a little bit,” Durst told MTV news. “About accepting things a little bit more, maybe accepting the fact that you can’t control or change everything and it is the way it is. Sometimes it’s about less is more. It’s about the seed. Thinking about this gigantic tree that you think is so beautiful but it started with this just seed. So ‘less is more’ is sort of the theme.”

The star has been moving around the US, looking for inspiration. He continued: “I’m trying to get away from my businesses in Los Angeles. I want to clear my mind a little bit and give my mind a little bit of time to breathe so I can pinpoint or at least nail down feelings I’m having and that I’ve had for the last however long. I need to nail them down long enough to actually write about and elaborate on them.

“I’m actually now finding the real Fred Durst. I have always been Fred Durst and I’ve always been me. You understand yourself better when you have more time and freedom to actually spend time dealing with yourself. When life was worrying about a car payment or a rent payment and a bill, you’re so consumed with that, you really don’t have time to know yourself. That’s surviving and getting by. Once you get in a position where your rent is taken care of and you do have a job, you really get to deal with yourself and really become one with yourself. And you wake to your mind every day. That’s your best friend and your worst enemy — your own brain.”
