Earlier this year, the reformed ’90s band confirmed they were writing new songs, but said no one would hear them unless they were “outstanding”.
Now speaking ahead of the group’s headline set at Latitude Festival tonight (July 17), Anderson has said that the band would need to rediscover their old “magic” before they’d consider releasing new material.
“I don’t want us to put a record out just because people want us to, if it’s not right then it’s not right.”
Anderson said he is hopeful the band can carry on past this summer’s festivals.
“I’d like to think there’s a future for the band. I think realistically unless we make a new album I don’t really see that there’s much future in going round and playing the same set from the ’90s year after year,” the frontman concluded.
Anderson is due to release his new solo album ‘Black Rainbows’ on September 26. It will be preceded by a single, ‘Brittle Heart’, on August 15.
