Sonic Youth have started work on a new album, but Thurston Moore has said the group would rather work on a film.
Moore said that the group have started work on a new record in between scoring music for the French film 'Demonlover'.
Talking about the follow-up to last year's 'NYC Ghosts & Flowers' long player, Moore told VH-1: "It's pretty much where we've always been at in a way - that sort of grand, American tradition but infusing it with complete and utter noise anarchy, a la Whitehouse. We're balancing those two concepts."
In addition to writing scores, the group would also like to move into film: We basically want to make movies - get away from this record-making business. DVDs are where it's at. I'd really like to do more visual work with our music and have it exist in the same medium. We'd like to actually create DVD as product, where it is full-on musical scoring, full-on song scoring and film and other visual media existing with it... We're pretty serious about trying to look at that as something to do as a band."
