The Horrors have revealed that they are working on new music with producer Paul Epworth and that they could release a new album as soon as this year.
The band released fourth album ‘Luminous’ in 2014 but, in a new interview with Clash, Rhys Webb of the band confirmed that they have already begun work on new music and are recording with Epworth (Adele, Florence + The Machine).
“We’re actually working on a new album at the moment. So we’re not really having any downtime,” Webb said. “We’re writing and recording. Hoping to release a new record this year.”
The bass player added: “We wanted to get back in there and get writing. We had a really busy year of touring, so we were ready to get working on new stuff. It’s just because time flies, and it moves so quickly and before you know it, it will be a couple of years between releases.”
Earlier this year Epworth, who has also recorded with Friendly Fires, Lorde, U2, Coldplay and Paul McCartney in recent years, said that Adele’s follow up to ’21’ will “will come when it’s ready”.
Speaking about the follow-up to her 2011 album ’21’, which he worked on, Epworth explained that her third album is still something of a mystery to him: “I’ve got nothing,” he said. “There are no clues.”
