The follow-up to 'Silence Is Easy' takes the band down a new road...

STARSAILOR’s third album is set to be their most political yet.

The album, the follow-up to 2003’s ’Silence Is Easy’, is set for release later this year. Speaking to Rolling Stone singer James Walsh said that the untitled record is more “outward looking”.

He said: “[The new record] is more outward-looking, more influenced by what’s going on in the world. You go into the vocal booth and think that this has got to be as pure and pristine as Rufus Wainwright and Jeff Buckley – but with the aggression and rock & roll attitude of Liam Gallagher. Trying to find that balance can be like trying to achieve the impossible, but you’ve got to go for it.”
