Busy rockers Vampire Weekend
Vampire Weekend are already preparing to work on their third album.
The group have only just released their second LP 'Contra', but are already discussing ideas for what direction their next record will take, and hope to start recording between touring commitments.
Bassist Chris Baio revealed: "I think we will be touring for the better part of next year, and I think we are already thinking about our next record. Thinking about recording and seeing how much we can actually get done with all the travelling. Yeah, that's the next step.
"It's kind of just concepts right now, with little ideas. It's just starting now."
While the 'Cousins' hitmakers are unsure what their third album will sound like, they say they were careful to make 'Contra' a natural progression from their self-titled debut LP, but added a few new twists.
Chris explained to The Aquarian Weekly: "I think we thought broadly of this album as the next step for our band and not as this kind of reaction against our first album. So we thought of maybe different things that we would hint at on our first record, and now we're fully exploring them. Like in a song like 'A-Punk,' I feel like it has some elements of ska in it, but doesn't really fully go for it. And in a song like 'Holiday' on this record, I think we really did go for it.
"We also thought of different ways to expand our sound. Playing with tempo, having two ballads, having faster songs and longer songs, having-or I guess similarly-short songs. But it's just more. It's just wider as an album. There's more width to it."Posted on 11 Jan 2010 07:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
