Gearing up for a tour supporting Maroon 5, Sweden's The Hives have revealed some more details regarding their forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2004's Tyrannosaurus Hives. The new record is titled The Black And White Album and, presumably, there will be matching suits to fit in with the theme.
Though the retro punk rock act has been known to work on their records themselves, this time they collaborated with musician and producer Pharrell Williams and famed producer Jacknife Lee. "At times it has felt like we are prisoners to our own creativity and that it is taking a long time," Lead singer Pelle Almvquist said. "At this time we have a lot of songs. In the past we only had what was on each album. We ask you to bear with us as we take the time to wrestle this onto an album."
The Black And White Album was recorded in Miami, London and Sweden. "This new album has been recorded all over the world," Almvquist added, "Because we thought it was time to have other people involved besides ourselves and our closest friends."
