YAY,this is so exciting!! Thanks to Tom for Tweeting-all the fans wish them the very best as they record the album!! 😀
Holidays over. 2010 done. 10 new songs written. No Doubt’s 2011 New Years resolution: to record our new album…beginning TODAY! -Tom
EDIT-Clarification from Tom:
To clarify: last yr we were in studio mostly writing, just some recording. Starting 2day back in the studio, mostly recording… -Tom
EDIT AGAIN-Tom posted on the No Doubt forum this afternoon to further clarify the band’s writing and recording progress-much thanks to Tom for taking the time to explain! 🙂
Yep I can see how our tweets might be less than clear about this process.
We worked (in a little studio) most of last year writing songs. We ‘demo’ them as we write, which is like making rough draft recordings.
At one point we did go into a ‘real’ studio last year in May I think to really record some of them for the final album versions.
But we didn’t finish those songs completely in that session. After that we resumed in the writing studio and wrote more tunes during the rest of last year.
Now, starting today, we’re back in a real studio really recording again. Excitedly!
There are two new ND babies coming soon, mine and Tony’s, so there will be a little delay for that. 🙂
This process does take us awhile, it always has. Plus life is a little more complicated and busy than it was before we all had kids etc.
So the goal is to write a couple songs more this year and of course finish recording all of them.
We’re really really happy with the new songs and feel this great sense of momentum going into the new year.
