Jez: ‘You’ll have to wait until 2012 for our next album’

Once again Jez has spoke about the band’s plans for next year. As previously reported, a greatest hits album is in the works. Then he goes onto say don’t expect new doves til 2012..

“We’ve done four albums so next year, around January time, we are putting out a greatest hits collection. I know four albums isn’t masses but we have been around for ages because each album takes so long to write,” explained Jez Williams.

“We will have to start thinking about a fifth album after the greatest hits collection, but in all honesty, I doubt we’ll finish our fifth album until at least two or three years’ time.”

He added: “It makes me sick just thinking about it. That’s because I know it will be the start of two to three years of arguments. The thing about Doves is all three of us write each song. We’re a democracy, and we always have different input into each songs so it ends up taking ages. Expect a new Doves album in 2012.”

Interesting reading, doesn’t surprise me to much. If you’ve followed doves long enough, you were not expecting a new album next summer. Next year should be good with the greatest hits album, which will presumably be toured a wee bit. They could have fun with that, as many bands have done with tours celebrating just the music. More later, gotta run to work..
