“Stuart Staples, éternel leader des élégants et ténébreux Britanniques Tindersticks, donne sa première interview de l’année à Obsküre Magazine. Il livre aux lecteurs les clefs d’un nouvel album, The Something Rain, où se dévoile un Tindesticks raffermi, plus intimiste et sombre que sur ses derniers travaux. La mort a pavé son chemin, mais le groupe en tire une étrange lumière.

New Tindersticks’ Album will be recorded this summer in France

according to this interesting interview in the Daily Post:

“Over summer Stuart, with David Boulter and Neil Fraser (co-founders of Tindersticks) plus additions Dan McKinna and Earl Harvin, will be working on a new album at Stuart’s French home studio, but it’s unlikely to be released before autumn.”
