The Kooks’ Luke Pritchard working on ‘massive’ dance project

'I've never done anything like it,' says singer of his new creative direction

The KooksLuke Pritchard has revealed that he is working on a “massive” dance track that’s “very different” to anything he’s produced before.

In a blog that the frontman penned for The Huffington Post, he claimed that he wanted to continue to pursue the new direction and “modern sounds” he and the Brighton band had found with their third album ‘Junk Of The Heart’, which was released in September.

He wrote:

I’m working on something at the moment with some very different production, I’ll post it as soon as it’s ready, it’s sounding massive. I’ve never done anything like it, it’s dance music essentially.


Earlier this year, the singer admitted that the band had become “stale” before recording ‘Junk Of The Heart’. “It felt like it needed a bit of a revival,” he said. “We wanted to make a really modern-sounding album and to try and fuse our more traditional influences with modern ones.”

Last month, meanwhile, Max Rafferty – former bassist with The Kooks – said that the allegations that he was sacked from the band in 2008 due to drug addiction were a “load of arse”. He cited musical differences as the reason for his departure.
