Scissor Sisters scrapped entire album before recording ‘Night Work’

Jake Shears reveals 18 months of work was binned

Scissor SistersJake Shears has said that the band scrapped an album they had worked on for 18 months before starting work on new effort ‘Night Work’.

The frontman said that he decided to bin the work the New York band had completed because “it left me a bit cold”. They then began work on their third album again, with the record now set for release on June 28.

“We worked on a record for about a year-and-a-half but we shelved it… about a year ago,” he told BBC News. “I ended up moving to Berlin for a couple of months and we decided to start a new record from scratch, we started it last June.”


Of the scrapped album he said: “In my heart I knew it wasn’t right, I didn’t really know what it was trying to say. It left me a little bit cold.”

‘Night Work’ will be the follow-up to 2006 album ‘Ta-Dah’.

Scissor Sisters are set to play at the Glastonbury festival in June.
