Elbow drummer Richard Jupp says the band are hard at work on their new album, which they want to release sometime this year.
The follow up to 2008 album ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’ had originally seen singer Guy Garvey proclaim the band had been dabbling in shoegaze and psychedelia. However, Jupp refuted those comments.
“Let’s just say it’s [Garvey‘s comments] inaccurate,” he joked. “It’s at an experimental stage. We’re loving being back in the studio, it’s really exciting. We’re just ploughing through it now.”
Jupp added that the band are “rabid” for recording the new album and building on their past success. “The last one was astronomical for us,” he said. “Using that springboard… I’d love to get the album finished and get it out on the road [before 2010 ends].”
