Primal Scream have spoken out, revealing a few intriguing details about their forthcoming studio album.
Primal Scream are stirring, planning their next move. The legendary group played a handful of shows across the summer, hooking up with The Stone Roses for a starring role at their recording breaking three night Heaton Park stand.
Dropping in a few new tracks, it was clear that Primal Scream were infused with a rare energy. Speaking to MOJO (via FACT), the group have revealed a few titbits of information about ongoing sessions for their proposed new studio album.
David Holmes has stepped in on production, with Andrew Innes explaining that his role was "playing the group ‘weird’ German and French funk obscurities to create an atmosphere and giving frank opinions on the music they were producing.”
“David was very good”, Andrew Innes insisted, “at going, in his nicest possible way, ‘I think you’ve written that one before, I don’t think it’s up to what we’re doing here. Just getting us to do some work, basically – let’s make this a classic. He wasn’t scared or intimated by us, which is kind of what you need as a producer.”
Continuing, Bobby Gillespie warned fans not to expect 'Screamadelica Pt. 2' but enthused about the energy within the band. “For us it’s a joy to be able to do this man, it’s a blessing. People in bands saying ‘my hell making this album…’ Who wants to listen to some cunt moaning about how sad they are? I think they’re just fucking pussies… they’re weak. I’ve got no time for weak people.”
Primal Scream's new album is due to be released in 2013.
