Nyt album fra The Editors...
We’ve never really been a band that plans things; we’re not really the type of people who plan things full stop. Maybe we’re just drifting through life oblivious to stuff, I dunno, I don't really care, the fact is we cringe at the idea of sitting around talking about how our records are going to sound before we’ve started them. It’s a waste of time, get writing, get rehearsing, get recording and see what happens, the best laid plans will change forty times in the studio anyway. Making a more electronic record wasn't really the point, the point was to do things we hadn’t done before. It was the most natural thing in the world for us to look at moving our sound somewhere new, to write songs on different instruments, to record in different ways, so that in the end hopefully we’d have a record that feels different from what we’ve done before. Don't get me wrong, I see a great leap forward in both sound and song writing between The Back Room and An End Has A Start and I’m very proud of both records but In This Light And On This Evening is very much a new chapter for Editors. In my opinion the great bands evolve over the course of their careers and take risks…this album will alienate some Editors fans, it will split opinion…good. I hope you enjoy the record.
We recorded nearly twenty songs and whittled them down to these 9 for the album, the other songs will come out in various ways over the coming months but these 9 songs we felt to be the best album, a record that flows from start to finish and a record that needs to be listened to as a whole, so I do hope you have the time to do so, maybe even more than once?
Thanks for reading and listening¨Be good, Tom Smith xx
