James have told Radio 1 that they’re bringing out an album of b-sides.
It’ll be released next February – and two months later, there will be a new album from the band with a tour planned for the end of the year.
They’ve just got back from China where they played an historic gig in Beijing. It was the first time the audience were allowed to stand up and dance!
Saul and Jim told Radio 1, the B sides album is one of the best things they’ve ever done: “We’re going to call it ‘The Best B-side in the World Ever: Volume 1’! We’ve got tonnes of stuff, the sound’s fantastic! We’ve got about forty songs.”
Making the album is bringing back memories for the band. They told us: “There are all the associated events that come with listening to those things, going through puberty – things dropping, things falling out – aghhhh!”
