Ed O’Brien, bass player of the Oxford-based band, gave to the fans a sneak peak on their latest work: “We’re at the finishing line. When you’re making a record, a film, write a book for ages and ages you think the finishing line is miles away. Now it feels it’s in touching distance. But of course, it being a creative process, at the last bit also, you have bursts of energy, you achieve a lot of things in a small period of time and then you’re nearly there. It might slow down. But yeah, hopefully it will be a matter of weeks.”
According to O’Brien the album, which it has been said to be their best work ever, will be out ideally sometime this year or at the beginning of 2011 the latest.
