Edinburgh-formed indie band Django Django have announced that their next album is set to released in January next year – and revealed that it features collaborations with both Slow Club and Metronomy.
The Djangos are hard at work on their third album at a purpose-built studio in London, and the Mercury-nominated band enlisted the services of Metronomy drummer Anna Prior for after heavy touring prompted drummer/producer David Maclean to take a short break.
“It’s where we all come to just mess about,” said Maclean of the Tottenham warehouse where the band are recording of the new record. “You can do what you want to do without worrying about clock-watching or studio fees. To me, the last album felt a bit bloated.”
Another track on the album features the sole vocals of Slow Club‘s Rebecca Taylor after a duet with Vincent Neff was deemed “too cheesy”.
“It’s a bit of a curveball for people maybe, ‘cos Vinnie isn’t on it”, Maclean said. “But to me it’s got the Django melody.”
