Royal Blood are premiering another new track on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show tomorrow

They've been talking about making second album 'How Did We Get So Dark?' too.
Those exciting types in Royal Blood have been talking to Zane Lowe on Beats 1.

They’ll be premiering another track, ‘Hook Line & Sinker’ from their forthcoming second album ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’. In the accompanying interview, they revealed how they worked with different producers on the record, which in the end they didn’t end up using. One of those was The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.

“We were really open about it,” Mike from the band explains. “We we spent a lot of time in LA here and went to Nashville for a bit and we met lots of different producers. But I think really we did full circle, we went back to Brighton and it came down to me and Ben being in a room and relying on each other really and the buck kind of really stopping there. And yeah I guess it just became about let’s get better at what we do. Let’s refine what’s good about us rather than this huge reinvention where we come back with bleached hair and onesies.

“We did a little bit in Nashville with Dan Auerbach. It was so fun. I think the whole experience of that and at the time we experienced it was so important for us because… I guess we just were reminded that anything’s possible and that there really are no rules to this. And I think a band like ours, we’re built on limitation and rules, the first album’s like ‘no harmonies, no one else’. These are our tools and we have to make something whereas yeah we did realize you know what this is this is about being creative and about about entering your dream world.”

“It did get a bit mad though out there,” adds Ben, “because I remember just playing electric bongos and things were happening that were like so uncomfortable with but they were just so funny and fun that it was nice to get out of our system. It was definitely a good time to experiment and widen our perspective on what we can do because then we could really focus on what we wanted to do.”
