The Kills say their new album will be “completely different”

30 May 2014, 18:18 | Written by Robby Ritacco

The Kills first confirmed they were working on a new album back in fall, but since that time there’s been very little word from the duo save for the announcement of a tour (which begins tonight). Today, we get out first blip of information about the record from a recent interview singer Alison Mosshart gave with Nashville Scene, in which she stated that the forthcoming album is shooting for a “completely different” sound.

We’re trying to make a record that’s completely different. Anything that sounds like it could have sat quite easily on any of the other records will probably get scrapped or reworked, played on some kind of different instruments with a completely different kind of rhythm and a completely different kind of feel. That’s what takes so long, is trying to break out of the thing that you know and you’re good at and trying to get good at something else.

Still no word on a title or release date, which Mosshart addressed later on in the piece, stating “You never know what’s going to happen with a record when you’re writing. It could be done all the sudden in two months, or it could take another year.”
