Kele Okereke has confirmed that Bloc Party are currently recording a new album.
Their most recent record Four was released in 2012 before the band announced a hiatus. Now it seems that they’re set to return with new material this year. Hurrah!
Speaking to Australian radio station Triple J, Kele said: “I guess it’s the first time that I have talked about it but we are making a record at the moment. It’s sounding like nothing that we’ve done before but that’s what everyone always says. We’ve started recording – I think we have about 18 song ideas and we’re going to lay them down properly in the next few months.”
Whilst at the radio station, Kele also performed a new track called ‘Exes’ acoustically.
