Caribou Studio Bound

Dan Snaith works on follow-up to Swim

After the success of Caribou's most recent album Swim, Dan Snaith has been reflecting on it:

"The response has totally floored me and it has been really fulfilling that way, seeing it spread out in the world and connect with people more than anything I've done in the past."

Attention now turns to the follow-up which Dan is already working on:

"There's definitely a sense there's plenty of things to start working on but there is also the sense that  I don't want to make the same album again," he told 6 Music.

So can we expect a complete change in direction?

"My taste in music means that’s its unlikely that I will ever make a specific genre album, I'm too much a of a magpie collecting different ideas from all sorts of areas," he explained.

 "But definitely I'm still very much interested in contemporary dance music and dance music in general, it seems like that's where in music, the interesting things are happening at the moment.

Dan Snaith is a prolific musician so he tells us, he won't keep us waiting any longer than necessary:

"Making an album somehow mysteriously always seems to take about year.

"Sometimes I think this one is going really slowly and then there is a year of constant recording getting the release together, so it might be a year and a half from now"
