The Hold Steady are ready to record their new album.
Singer Craig Finn recently spoke after the band’s show in Providence and said that they have much of the material ready to be recorded and even played one of the songs Ask Her For Adderall at the show. The plan is to start recording in December though Finn has yet to put vocals to most of the music. He went on to say:
“It sounds like the rest of our stuff. It’s hard for me to tell what’s different. I haven’t finished lyrics at all. Writing a record to me is like doing a crossword puzzle, there’s that last one on the bottom and once you get that one the rest of them it gets really easy. I don’t have that one yet, but I have a lot of the other ones”
