Neon Neon to release new album?

The duo's debut 'Stainless Style' came out five years ago

Neon Neon have hinted about possible plans for a new album release.

The band posted a picture of Communist publisher and activist Giangiacomo Feltrinelli on their Instagram account, at NeonNeonOfficial, next to the letters NN2.

Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals and producer Boom Bip released their debut as Neon Neon in 2008.


The album, ‘Stainless Style’, was a concept album based upon the life of car engineer John DeLorean.

It is thought that Giangiacomo Feltrinelli could be the inspiration for the duo’s next LP. Feltrinelli died in 1972.

When ‘Stainless Style’ was released, Rhys cast doubt over the possibility of a second record, saying: “I don’t know about making another Neon Neon album because it was quite a specific record about DeLorean’s life story… If we did something in the future it would have to be something different.”

In 2011 Neon Neon put out their first new material in three years. The previously unheard song ‘Wheels’ was originally recorded in sessions for their debut Mercury Music Prize nominated album.

‘Wheels’ was released as part of the ‘Complex’ compilation, which celebrated the 10th anniversary of Lex Records.
