The Kooks - "Listen" Pop
Listen is the band's first album in three years.The album was recorded in Los Angeles and London, and produced by Inflo.
'With this record we didn't do any rehearsing beforehand. I'd write a song with Inflo or on my own, put it up and we'd all play over it. There was a real freedom to the process,' said the band's frontman Luke Pritchard. 'To me this album is about pure expression. Even the way we made the album felt fresh. Rather than us just being a band in a room, playing our guitars with the vocal over the top, which is what we'd always done before, we were really listening to what was going on around us, picking up ideas. The whole thing was much more natural.'
