Maxïmo Park have revealed further details about their second album to Billboard.
The four-piece have been working with Gil Norton and have so far recorded twenty new songs. Around thirteen are expected to make the cut for the as-yet-untitled follow-up to their breakthrough debut, A Certain Trigger.
Paul Smith - singer in said band, y'know - spoke to Billboard thusly:
"We had about twenty songs and a three-week period with [Norton] where we went into a studio in Newcastle and played the songs over again and made some adjustments. You need an extra pair of ears because on the first album we played those songs for a year and a half before we even recorded it and you could go, 'Oh that's no good, I'm sick of that'. [This time around] we just don't have that.
"We kind of realised they were a bit different to the songs on A Certain Trigger. [That album] had this concise, emotional pop and these two songs seemed to take it to another level."
