The Horrors’ fifth album will be produced by Paul Epworth
Post-punk group The Horrors have enlisted the services of super-producer Paul Epworth to help them record their upcoming fifth album
t’s been just over a year since post-punk band The Horrors released their fourth studio album Luminous, but they’ve already begun working on new songs for album number five, and have brought in super-producer Paul Epworth to help with the recording.
Speaking to Clash, the band’s bassist Rhys Webb said that they hoped the record would be with fans before the year is out. Webb said: “We’re actually working on a new album at the moment. So we’re not really having any downtime. We’re writing and recording. Hoping to release a new record this year.”
Webb added: “We wanted to get back in there and get writing. We had a really busy year of touring, so we were ready to get working on new stuff. It’s just because time flies, and it moves so quickly and before you know it, it will be a couple of years between releases.”
Enlisting the help of Paul Epworth marks a departure for The Horrors, with their previous two records having been produced jointly by themselves and Craig Silvey. Epworth, though, has an illustrious back catalogue, having previously worked with Adele, Plan B, Florence & The Machine and Paul McCartney.
