During the interview Parker spoke about his admiration for Turner, revealing that he considers the Sheffield musician to be “in another league to me as a songwriter.”
“Absolutely. [Although] he can’t play drums as good as me,” Parker added. Confirming that the two still haven’t worked on music together, Parker did reveal that they do now “live down the street from each other.”
“I was in his pool the other day. He wasn’t there at the time,” Parker said, before joking: “I didn’t jump his fence… Yeah. Jumped the fence. No, I didn’t.”
“At some point it’s got to dry up, right?” Parker said when he was asked about not wanting to lose his songwriting magic. “So I guess you’ve just got to enjoy it and make the most of it while you can. Don’t worry, I promise it [the next album] won’t take five years.”
Earlier this month, Parker spoke in another interview about why he revised the track ‘Borderline’ on ‘The Slow Rush’.
