The Bristol band have confirmed that they’re working on a new album.
He added, “The producers we’ve got is Nick Launay and Adam ‘Atom’ Greenspan and we’ve got another guy. I don’t know if I’m supposed to mention him. Kenny Beats. I’m gonna get in so much trouble, man.”
Producer Kenny Beats, who joined the conversation via FaceTime, replied with, “Let me just say though IDLES are the best band in the whole world.”
“I heard IDLES and was like this is all I want to work on, this is all I want to do, these guys are the best. I got into their DMs and told them that. Luckily we got to meet and the proof is in the pudding. I care so much and I think they can tell. It has nothing to do with anybody knowing we’re working together or money or anything. I love what they’re doing. I want to be a part, so now everyone knows I’m a part of it.”
IDLES’ last full-length release was 2018’s Joy as an Act of Resistance. The group appear in our new photo book The Crack Magazine Archives. Order a copy via our store and receive a free print signed by IDLES.
