Although the length of James’ career certainly qualifies its members to be considered the Elder Statesmen of britpop, the band has always managed to sound fresh with every consecutive album it makes. And speaking of making albums, James is currently hard at work on its new effort, which is said to be titled We Want Our Money Back. The band, led by singer Tim Booth, whose enigmatic spinning and furious dervish revolutions remain some of the most arresting and captivating moves in music today, is said to be sifting through twenty-five new songs for the planned disc. James will be touring this autumn before it heads to the studio to record the album. Although nothing is official yet, both Brian Eno and Stephen Street are said to be handling production duties. We Want Our Money Back is being planned for an April release.
