New song! And news of the second album

January 8, 2007 by  

Well finally some confirmation of new material! Over on the Wolfmother forums, much discussion goes on about when new material is coming out, when the next album might be recorded, whether they have toured for too long, etc etc. So it’s great to read some news about both a new song, that has already been recorded, and plans for the next album.

About the new song:

Andrew StockdaleWolfmother celebrated the news of their Grammy nomination last month by writing a new song, which they’ve since recorded.

“The working title is ‘Love Attacker,’ ” Stockdale said. “It’s about people who use love as a weapon to manipulate and get their way through desire.”

Stockdale’s unsure whether the song will turn up on Wolfmother’s next album or someplace else first. “It might be out there in no time at all,” he said. “No plans have been made … but it’s very exciting to be doing another song.”

And of the album:

As for that next album, Wolfmother don’t expect to be back in the studio again until the fall.

“We do have a lot of jams, like incoherent pieces of music, that at least could get the ball rolling,” Stockdale said. “And I have a few ideas I’ve been working on in hotels and stuff, which is kind of the way half of the record was written last time. Sometimes it can be a long process and sometimes it happens really quickly, so you just have to keep the fishing net open for ideas and hope that you catch a few.”

So why the long wait? Well, tour dates in Japan, Europe and Australia are scheduled through early April, after which Wolfmother plan to hit the States one more time.

“We’ll be touring till probably July, and then we’ll probably take a break and start working on the second record at the end of [2007],” Stockdale said.

The article is actually about Wolfmother’s Grammy chances next month (which Andrew believes to be little to none!), and the band will be there, apparently, despite gigs in the UK two nights before and in Holland two nights after.

You can read the full article/interview on MTV’s website.
