Blossoms have 15 songs written for their second album, apparently

At least eight or nine of them might even be good enough to make the cut, apparently.
Never knowingly underprepared, chart toppers Blossoms already have 15 songs ready for their second album.

Talking to NME, frontman Tom Ogden revealed there are a whole heap of possibilities already in the bag for the follow up to their debut, which was released earlier this month and promptly shot to the Number 1 slot.

“I carried on writing after ‘Getaway’ and ‘Honey Sweet’,” he revealed, “even though we had the album done, as I was in quite a creative flow. I’m always writing when I can, so we’ve got about 15 tunes. It’s important to stay on the front foot for songwriting, so you’ve got stuff spare if you get stuck.”

“At least eight or nine of those 15 songs are worthy of going on the next album, but I’d want to have 30 or more songs to choose from when we come to really working on the next record. Sometimes you don’t know how good a song is until everyone else contributes their parts. A song like ‘At Most A Kiss’ didn’t work great when it was just me and a keyboard.”
