Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan has been talking about his band’s new album, and says it’s gone in a different direction from their previous work, telling The Star: “What we’ve done is become more real. It’s not about the sampled beats anymore, it’s all about real drums. But don’t worry, the album’s still really fucking ugly. Sometimes even I’m upset by its ugliness.
It’s a proper beast of a record and I can’t wait to get it out there. But to be honest… the whole album just picks you up and tears through you.”
He added: “Noel Gallagher’s been in the studio a couple of times for a listen and given it the thumbs up, so you know it must be as good as I’m saying.” Well, if you consider Noel Gallagher to be a true arbiter of taste and discernment, presumably.
