Four tracks have already been completed - but the band have also got the world to conquer...

Music have begun work on their second album, with four tracks recorded already, NME.COM can reveal.

However, the follow-up to the Leeds outfit’s self-titled debut will not appear for some time as the band intend to conquer the world first.

Speaking as Music were about to head on their first trip to the US, frontman Robert Harvey revealed: “We have four tracks. They are only ideas, not finished at the minute. We’re jamming, recording. I don’t have a clue when we’ll be back in the studio though.

“After America and Japan, we have a couple of weeks off over Christmas, then we have the big English gigs. And then we have a brief few days when we might get a jam in, then after that its Australia and America again, so I don’t know. It’ll be quite some time.

“If you want to reach out to as many people as you can, which we do, these things take time. We’d love to be able to go in and write the new album, but there’s a lot of people that want to hear Music now.”

Harvey said the band were unfazed by the attention they were getting from abroad, particularly Japan where ‘The Music’ has sold 100,000 copies. He said he was not nervous about meeting expectations.

“We’re dead happy about that,” he said. “Its the small things in life that make me nervous, like going round to your girlfriend’s house and meeting her mum and dad for the first time. I’m confident about the band I’m in and what we’re doing. I don’t care what people think.”

Music release new single ‘Getaway’ on November 18. See next week’s NME.COM for details of a very special NME competition, essential for all Music fans.
