John Taylor says: "We are really excited by the new sound. I think we really found ourselves with this record."
"I think this is our best album so far." le Bon adds.
Bless their hearts, they say this about every new upcoming album.
Can't wait to hear Andy's new music.
Every band and songwriter does, really!
I suspect there's a bit of truth and exagerration in those quotes though. You do get naturally excited about the new stuff you write and live for the moments you hit a brand new hook/arrangement that keeps you coming back to it. But you're also not going to talk about the process and say "Meh, it's coming along just okay. For every good song or instrumental we write, there's at least 3 or 4 other ones we throw out because they were ultimately terrible or didn't come together the way we hoped. But we're trudging along!"
