Glam rock group Scissor Sisters have started the long hours in the studio to follow up their BRITS-nominated album 'Ta-Dah' (2006). The band, that have vowed to dedicate two straight years for this new album, have reached the writing level but not yet the arranging.
"It's poppy and since there's no arrangement yet, all of our writing is just piano and my voice. As it take shape, it's gonna even take on more of a style," frontman Jake Shears told Spinner.com. In total there are 15 "really dancy" numbers ready to be polished and one cover of an "obscure song".
At least one song is more detailed than the others. A song that Shears and guitarist Baby Daddy penned with Kylie Minogue for her 10th studio album, 'X' eventually did not make the cut and Shears decided to use it for the band's material. "There's a great song that we wrote together that is definitely in the experimental vein," he said. "It's a song that I love and I think Scissors might record it."
Regarding the cover song, Shears won't go further than describing it "cool", explaining "I mean, no one would know anyway. It's a pretty obscure song."
There still no time frame set for the release of the album for Shears felt it will be too soon. Beside working on the album, the flamboyant singer is working on musical Armistead Maupin's 'Tales of the City.'
