UK-based Doves have announced plans to record their new album in February of 2007. The band has been toiling in their Derbyshire studio for most of the second half of of 2006. They'll do a proper recording and releasing a the album via Capitol Records in the Fall of 2007.
"For anyone under the impression that we’ve been sitting back holidaying/taking it easy, they’d be mistaken, we’ve been grafting hard for the last few months, writing lots & lots of songs / music, last month we relocated temporarily to a cottage in the Peak District, Derbyshire (next to a llama farm - that’s the front cover of the album sorted) for a change from our regular M56 studio & it's done us a lot of good, creatively that is," said the band on their blog.
This will be the first full-length release since 2005's Some Cities, which featured the single Black and White Town. The band also released a live album in 2006 titled Live EP, a download-only EP of 5 songs pulled from their last tour. It consisted mostly of tracks recorded in the UK, but there was also a track from a US show in Brooklyn. Just to avoid across-the-ocean envy, I'll bet.
