Grandaddy Recording Their First New Album in Almost a Decade
Published Sep 01, 2015Though little is known about the project at present, Grandaddy leader Jason Lytle has confirmed that the band are apparently in the midst of recording their first album in close to a decade.
Earlier this summer, the vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist began hinting at a new release via his Twitter account, writing back in July that it was time to "Focus on NEW GD LP." As Stereogum points out, a follow-up tweet from yesterday (August 31) suggests that Lytle is now in the studio. The tweet, which you'll see down below, says that the act are "tracking" the new LP, and contemplating how many layers were put onto 2000's The Sophtware Slump.
While it's unclear exactly when Grandaddy plan to issue their next full-length, it'll be their first since 2006's Just Like the Fambly Cat. The band went on hiatus while wrapping the recording sessions behind the album, though they ended up reuniting in 2012 for a series of live shows.
While tracking new GD LP....need to remind myself no song on sophtware slump had more than 20 tracks.... 16 on the average!— jason lytle (@jasonlytle) September 1, 2015
Lytle, meanwhile, has maintained a solo career, last offering up 2014's House Show.
