The follow-up to 2016’s “Hidden Metropolis” is being helmed by producer Tom Dalgety, who has beforehand labored with GHOST and ROYAL BLOOD, amongst others.
“We have been digging away at that over the past yr and a half,” Billy stated. “We’re working with an excellent younger English producer referred to as Tom Dalgety. And, clearly, with the circumstances of the final yr or so, it has been a bit difficult. However we’re making some progress.
“The philosophy in THE CULT camp, actually, is about high quality, not amount,” Duffy defined. “We do not simply must preserve placing out information for the sake of it. With out being ridiculous, we wanna, inside a sure life like timeframe, be sure that the information that we put out are nearly as good as they are often. So generally that takes a bit longer. And that is type of the place we’re at.”
He reiterated: “We’re properly into the method of the brand new CULT album.”
Talking about THE CULT‘s songwriting strategy this time round, Billy stated: “One of many issues about THE CULT, I believe, which may be price mentioning is it is at all times been a collaborative artistic effort between me and Ian [Astbury, vocals]. And as you’ll be able to think about, like every type of state of affairs, there’s pushing and pulling, and Ian desires to go a sure path, and I’d resist, or I’d wanna go a sure path. And that rigidity creates [THE CULT sound]. It is not like Ian writes ‘Ian songs’ and Billy writes ‘Billy songs,’ and we file them as THE CULT. There are not any ‘Ian songs’ or ‘Billy songs’ — there are Ian and Billy songs collectively. And over the time, there is a little bit of a artistic — it is not at all times rigidity; I do not imply that in a nasty approach. That is what makes it good. It is that mix. We kind of respect one another to the extent that I believe there is a belief there, and I believe that, after this a few years collectively, and some years aside, I believe we belief one another and respect one another sufficient.
“I believe it is wholesome to have artistic rigidity,” he continued. “There’s nothing worse than strolling right into a room the place no person’s bought any concepts. I might quite have an argument about one thing artistic than to don’t have anything, simply the sound of crickets: ‘All proper. What are we gonna do now?’
“We see issues very in a different way,” Billy admitted. “In a whole lot of methods, we’re very alike. Our birthdays are one yr and two days aside. So we’re each Taureans. Our birthdays are each arising very quickly. We’re very alike in a whole lot of methods and really totally different in a whole lot of methods.”
“Hidden Metropolis” was launched in February 2016 through Cooking Vinyl. The follow-up to 2012’s “Alternative Of Weapon” was written by Astbury and Duffy and was produced by Bob Rock, who has beforehand labored with METALLICA and MÖTLEY CRÜE.
