Oborne says the band will be releasing new music before their appearance at Reading and Leeds Festival and there will be an official announcement soon.
At the beginning of this month, Healy shared a screenshot on his Instagram Stories of a currently untitled song that is presumably on the record named “New Recording 11.”
The first screenshot he writes, “This record is taking long than I thought but that’s cool.”
Then he said, “I will start putting music out in August but I really don’t know when the whole album will be out / finished.”
Now, Oborne is saying an announcement will be coming soon with new music also being on the way.
“The record is coming together. We’ve had this recording studio tour bus on the American tour which has been great for productivity…The boys have been constantly working. I can’t say exactly when it will come, there are a few elements coming together, but we will be releasing music before Reading,” says Oborne.
He revealed the band will be heading back to the same studio where they worked on A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. The record label boss also says “It feels like it will be a long record.”
“Will it be a double album? I don’t know what that means any more, it’s definitely going to be a long album but I can’t possibly commit to whether it will be a double album or not. That’s a decision that happens when everything is almost completed,” says Oborne.
However and whenever the new album drops, we’re excited to hear some new tunes.
