Caribou preparing for next album

By | Published on Thursday 3 March 2011


Caribou’s Dan Snaith has revealed that he is almost ready to begin work on his next album, the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Swim’.

Snaith told BBC 6music: “The response [to ‘Swim’] has totally floored me and it has been really fulfilling that way, seeing it spread out in the world and connect with people more than anything I’ve done in the past. There’s definitely a sense there’s plenty of things to start working on but there is also the sense that I don’t want to make the same album again”.

He continued: “My taste in music means that’s its unlikely that I will ever make a specific genre album, I’m too much a of a magpie collecting different ideas from all sorts of areas. But definitely I’m still very much interested in contemporary dance music and dance music in general, it seems like that’s where in music, the interesting things are happening at the moment”.

As for when the album might be finished, he has a rough idea: “Making an album, somehow mysteriously, always seems to take about a year. Sometimes I think this one is going really slowly and then there is a year of constant recording getting the release together, so it might be a year and a half from now”.
