Credo molto nel nuovo album dei Klaxons, tanto che l’unica cosa che mi trattiene dal prendere un biglietto per il loro concerto ad Amsterdam e’ che gli Arcade Fire potrebbero essere qui nella stessa data…

Klaxons say they intend to release the outtakes from their last album as an EP.

The band, whose second album ‘Surfing The Void’ is released on August 23, recorded a variety of songs for the record which did not ultimately make the cut.

However, Klaxons have told Zane Lowe that they now intend to release the tracks that did not fit the final album on their own at some point.

“It sounds folky, it’s not a record for a start it’s an EP, which will see the light of day at some point,” James Righton confirmed. “It’s a lot more complicated, a lot more considered as well. Lots of layered vocals.”

Bassist Jamie Reynolds added that the outtakes were a lot slower than the songs that made ‘Surfing The Void’.

“It’s quite slow, there’s a waltz on it and it’s just great. A seven-minute waltz!” he explained. “We’ve taken tracks and taken all the music out and replaced it with drones – it’s very drudgy and slow and beautiful and odd.”

Reynolds also explained the reason why the band conducted the various sessions, before recording the lion’s share of the album in California with producer Ross Robinson in the video interview on ZaneLowe.com.

“I think it was just a case of we’d only written 15 songs before [we started writing this album],” he said. “I think we went to perfect our craft, learning to write songs, figuring out how to write songs and lyrics. It was a time, having only written a small batch, to concentrate on what we were good at and figure that out without any consideration of writing a pop record.”

comment: First performance of New Year’s Day since 3 October 2009; this is the earliest it has been in a setlist since 10 October 2001. Michael Stipe was in attendance, hence the REM snippet in Vertigo. Moment Of Surrender was dedicated to the victims of the Love Parade crowd crush and their relatives. When U2’s 2010 European tour dates were initially announced on 24 September 2009, this was listed as the opening night of the leg. On 30 November 2009, it lost this status when the 6 August 2010, Turin gig was confirmed.
