Razorlight ready to lay down ’12-song album’

Band heading into studio this month to make a start

Razorlight are prepped to start laying down tracks for their third album.

The follow-up to their 2006 Number One record ‘Razorlight’ is reported to be shaping up well.

As previously reported, the album should be out later this year.

Speaking to the Daily Star, bassist Carl Delamo said: “We’ve got 12 songs that we could easily lay down now.”

The writing’s come round quickly too, and Delamo added: “Two or three months ago we didn’t really have any of the songs written properly, nor had we played the ideas together. Now it’s coming together really well.”

The band unveiled another new song at the weekend, called ‘Frequency’, which differed from the track they played at drummer Andy Burrow‘s solo Union Chapel show in London.

Delamo said of the latter song: “I’m not really sure what that one is finally going to be called yet.”

The band’s next UK gig will be at Nelson Mandela‘s 90th birthday party at Hyde Parkin London on June 27.

Delamo said of the gig: “It’s insane to play for Nelson Mandela on his 90th birthday.”
