In an interview with Billboard, band member Butch Vig echoed his comments from December about wanting to break Garbage's habit of taking a long time to record. "We have a couple offers to play, but we may try to go into the studio in June and start working on another album," he said. "We're all excited about that. We don't really have any songs started yet, but we all have ideas for songs. I have little riffs and things floating around in my head. In the past it would be so laborious and each record would take a year, but Not Your Kind of People took six months, so if we could get started some time in the summer and finish close to the end of the year, we could have it out in the spring or summer of next year, which would be cool."
Indeed. Not Your Kind of People was one of last year's best rock albums and a welcome return for a band that hadn't put out an album in seven years. It would be great to see them build on that momentum. But first, maybe we should let them work on figuring out some songs for the album.
