Bastille Working On Second Album In Between Tour Dates
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.20.2014



In an interview with Billboard, Bastille's Will Farquarson said that the band are working on a new album in between their ongoing tour dates. Here are highlights:

On working on their second album: "We just have some ideas, so while we're all back in London we're demoing some things, and they're quite promising. We like to try and stay busy, and when you're touring as much as we are we don't want to let the creativity become muted. We all love recording. Dan (Smith) loves to write and we love to get in the studio and do some stuff. So I think it's good whenever we're back in London to make sure we're busy writing new stuff to keep the creative muscles exercised."

On how their process has changed: "It's becoming more collaborative," he says. "Initially Dan did it all and we'd kind of go in and do our parts. Now the basis is still Dan's songwriting, but we're all in there from the get-go, just sticking our two cents in there. And a lot of the songs are taking shape in sound check as well. So we're coming from alive perspective because Dan will bring us the songs and we'll jam them and go from there and embellish it as we can."

On their song "Pompeii": "That's a strange one. It's kind of a tongue-in-cheek thing that we did that kind of got out of hand. It started off because Dan got really ill when we first got signed, and so to ease his way back into vocal recording we decided to do some mixtapes using old songs that we listened to growing up. These were interesting songs you wouldn't expect us to cover and try to reinvent in a more current kind of way, and then it became one of our biggest songs. Then we started doing it live just because it was a cool song and was fun to play, and audiences started to really kind of dig it. And it all started off like a little experiment."
