The writing for the next SW album is almost finished, and this time I’ve written it all for my live band. It’s mostly pretty long pieces (including the piece we previewed on the recent tour “Luminol”). We will start recording in LA in September with Alan Parsons overseeing things. Alan, as I’m sure many of you know, was the engineer on Dark Side of the Moon, one of the best sounding records ever. The new album should be out in early 2013, and conceptually and visually we are planning to take things to the next level with the packaging and live show too. Lasse is also going to be there to film so we plan to bring you some in the studio footage on the official SW YouTube channel.
