Razorlight 'going back to old sound'

Friday, 1st Oct 2010

Razorlight will be returning to their old sound on their new record as they seek to create an "energetic" album.

Lead singer Johnny Borrell told Xfm.co.uk that he wants to move away from the style heard on the 2008 release Slipway Fires, which he described as being a "breakup album".

Instead, he hopes the new songs will be more reminiscent of the up-tempo tracks that earned them their army of fans at the beginning of their career.

"To me it is going back more to the spirit and the energy of Up All Night/Somewhere Else kind of Razorlight, which is my favourite period of Razorlight," the performer told the radio station website.

Borrell added that he feels excited about the album and feels the group's fourth release is not too serious.

Fans of the band may be hoping the release of the as-yet unnamed album will see them hit the road again, as they have not given a performance since their show at Sandown Races in July of this year.
