The Jesus And Mary Chain have been teasing a follow-up to 1998’s Munki since at least 2007, and basically every time they give an interview, brothers Jim and William Reid cite their arguments about new material as the main reason a new record isn’t out yet. Perhaps that is finally going to change? A week ago or so, Jim Reid gave an interview to Time Out New York saying that they are in the studio:
We’re doing an album now. We actually just started recording. It’s early days, but I would say it’s a more mature sound for the Mary Chain. But let’s just wait and see.
Believe whatever you want; I remain skeptical. However, in our interview with Reid about the 30th anniversary of Psychocandy, he did not mention a new album. Then again, we didn’t ask.
