Graham finishes new studio album
at Folk Awards 2008
Graham Coxon has completed
recording his seventh studio album due out late summer.
The album was recorded at Olympic Studios (also used for Happiness In
Magazines) and is currently in the mixing stages.
BBC 6 Music, Graham revealed the album has an acoustic
and epic feel.
"It doesn't relate much to
previous records. There's guitars and drums, but I'm
really trying to do a lot of what I've been teaching to
myself about acoustic music and I wanted to make an album
that was really acoustic."
"It's all based with certain
sounds of things happening within a story. Whenever you
hear a specific instrument it means a specific thing or
emotion in the story."
Although the album's title
is yet to be decided and the artwork to be done, Graham
hopes the record will be released in the late summer.
"That would fit with the
music," he summed up the feeling of the record.
