Johnny Borrell has discussed Razorlight's new album, revealing that he looked back to the band's early work for inspiration on the new record.
Fans have been waiting for a new Razorlight record since the release of their 2008 album, Slipway Fires. Now, Borrell has revealed work is nearly complete on the follow up.
"Our first record was the garage rock 'n' roll record, the second record was the pop record, the third was the difficult break-up record," he tells NME magazine. "I thought if I could get the energy of the first one and some of the irresistibility of the second one, that's what we're going for."
The charismatic frontman also reveals that new bandmates Freddie Stitz and Gus Robertson have injected a new sense of excitement into the band.
"There's a whole new energy in it because we've got the new guys," he added, before revealing he is itching to get back to live performances.
"My philosophy at the moment is I will play anywhere at any point for whatever. I'm like, 'We're f***ing musicians, let's just f***ing play'."
