Somewhere, Jon Hein is psyched.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the high-pitched singer of Rush, Geddy Lee, said the band’s new album is taking shape and should come out sometime next year.
“We’re almost finished writing,” Lee says. “We wound the machine back up about three weeks ago. After a sluggish start, we’ve had a very fruitful couple of weeks in terms of writing. I’m very pleased with the direction that the material has taken. And I think we have one or two more songs that we’d like to write, and then we’ll start recording in earnest.”
Recording will be done “before Christmas. Then we’ll mix it some time in the next year, and then get it out.”
Geddy said that the new disc may be out this spring.
“I think it’s a little different than Snakes & Arrows,” says Lee about the new material. “It’s not finished so it’s hard to say exactly what it will sound like in totality, but I think that the direction of ‘Caravan’ and ‘BU2B’ sort of points in the direction that we’re going.”
