Post subject: New album? Reply with quote

Hello,

Does anyone know whether The Specials have any plans to record a new album anytime soon? I know Terry Hall has said he is interested, but that was quite a while back. I'm just interested to know whether things have changed, etc.

That would be absolutely fantastic. It would be brilliant to see what direction they would take with a new album. I'm sure Terry would have a number of lyrical classics he could include.

I had so totally given up on any kind of reunion of the band years and years ago...so when they did out of nowhere it was a classic case of "a watched kettle never boils".............and am applying the same theory to new material.... Very Happy

I don't think they would tour again with just a rearranged set of the same songs.....fingers crossed.

2009/2010 was awesome Surprised

Hopefully your right Willo - cant keep going round and round playing the same stuff (although id still would go to every gig i could).

I wish there was a band that was coming up through the scene that could become a successor to the Specials Rolling Eyes

I don't think there's any chance of a new album, to be honest. Especially as Terry has said that next year's tour is the last and that he's booked studio time for solo recording next year.

On the bright side, that means new material from Terry, Neville's already recorded a new album, I believe Roddy's been recordng again with the Skabs etc... so a plethora of new material from The Specials.

I hope they release a live album from next year's UK tour if this is to be the end.

Although it would be nice to have new stuff I kinda think the way its been done thus far has kept me happy and more to the point I think it's been done with the dignity that Terry said he wanted at the outset

If preserving that dignity means no new material I won't cry

The pressure to "deliver" with a 3rd Album would be immense and only The Specials as a collective truly know if they are capable of such a task after so many years and, if they decide not then we must accept there would have been a fair chance of The Specials Legacy being damaged and that we would all want to preserve at all costs.

I am sure the majority of us as fans would happily listen to a new recording of guitars feeding back and Brad falling over his drumkit to some extent (er ok not quite) but would hate to see the band come under fire from anyone. Evil or Very Mad

A recent lively pub - debate in the local universally agreed The Specials belong to a small elite genre of "groups and artists that can't be dissed"......and I hope it remains that way.

Having said that a farewell single with 3 or four tracks would provide a fitting "full stop" to The Bands output and still preserve the dignity of the Reunion whilst not running as great a risk of being dissected by the media and critics as a "comeback album" and not taking as much time and effort as a 10 track album.

Maybe the band should just adopt the attitude of "right we are out of here its been a blast and this ones for the fans ,the rest of you can just take it or leave it"

Well the Eagles did do a tour called "Hell Freezes Over" and they really despised each other, not like the Spareshells who only get on each others tits a bit??????
