Patti Smith has revealed she would like to do "one more album", and has "written a lot of songs".

Although she has worked on music with Soundwalk Collective in recent years, Patti Smith fans have been wondering when, and if, she'll follow up 2012's Banga, and last week, Smith shared her plans for new music in an interview with The Guardian.

Onne fan submitted a question which read: "It’s been too long since Banga. Are there any plans for a new album?" Smith responded, "I do have plans and I’ve written a lot of songs. I’d like to do one more album and my record company, Columbia, has very generously left the door open."

Another fan asked Smith if she has "any unrealised dreams", leading Smith to reply, "There’s nothing I love more than books. I’ve written some and I’m really happy with them but I just want to write at least one that I feel deserves to be in the canon of books to endure. I basically want to write something as good as Pinocchio and, yes, I’ve started it."

Smith was also asked if there's any more Soundwalk Collective collaborations. Smith wrote, "Funnily enough, during the pandemic we did six major pieces, all original, around 14 minutes long. One is dedicated to the children who got pancreatic cancer after the accident at Chernobyl, another to the underwater drilling that is killing our whales. I’m quite excited about it."
