Russian, South America tour, and new interview

Added on Sunday 22 May 2005, 18:12 (BST)

In a new interview with Jay that I've just obtained (it is from April 2005), Jay is asked where he's looking forward to touring with the new album..

"I'm looking forward to going to Russia actually. We’ve never played there, so I’m looking forward to that. I’m looking forward to doing South America again because I think it's just great down there, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, you know, the women are fabulous. I’m just looking forward to all of it. I’m looking forward to being back on the road with the new stuff."

I have a feeling that the interview is from the July issue of GQ magazine, which goes on sale on 2 June.  However, I could be completely wrong, but either way - I do not plan on putting the entire text online until I know where exactly it is from! 

It's quite a long interview (just under 6,000 words) which gives a good insight into things such as why much of the new album was recorded away from Chillington Studios:

"...working in a commercial studio just creates a discipline. There is a time constraint, things had to get done and that was part of the reason for doing it that way, you have to apply yourself properly."

 Jay also talks about why Feels Just Like It Should was chosen as the first single:

"The record company went through the process of 'Oh, we're not sure about this track, it's a bit heavy, it's a bit this, it's a bit that, can’t we have something nice like you normally do?' But I was like no not really because I don’t really want to do that anymore. I think if you hear it on the radio it stands out and it’s really different...It's a nice way to start, do something different, so hopefully people won’t just turn around and say it sounds exactly like what you did last time."
