prjio307 Posted August 12, 2011 Share Posted August 12, 2011 From the Billboard interview: But you're only going to put 10 or so on the record, and haven't you recorded like 50? "No, no. We're going to finish 13. We've started like 490 or something crazy. But it's such a harsh culling process within the group, because it's such a democracy, that a lot of songs don't even make it 'til the end of Thursday." Also it will be 42.5 minutes long: Speaking about the musical direction of the record, Buckland says, "I suppose the theme would be letting loose musically; louder drums, louder guitars, more contrast. Then we wanted to go down to the most intimate moments, then back to the biggest we've ever been. We wanted to contain as many interesting ideas as we could fit into 42-and-a-half minutes." I suppose this could just mean 10 tracks and 3 b-sides though. Although it wouldn't make a difference outside of sequencing as we still get all 13 in the end. Edit: I got the title of the album wrong in the thread title. Complete fail on my part, hopefully one of the mods will correct it or people will kindly ignore it. :P Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
