According to Noel’s latest interview for UAudio.com, the band wants to take its time when it comes to recording another album.
“I’m not saying we want to spend another ten years writing, but we definitely don’t want to rush it. I’d rather not do that again and just take our time. Quality over quantity, you know? If it means it does take a bit longer than we should, I don’t think it’s a bad thing if you have a great result from it,” said Noel.
Noel is currently writing new songs for the band. This is what he said about it: “I started writing again around the beginning of this year. I actually find it easier to write when I’m traveling. On your days off you’re sitting around a hotel room anyway so it gives you something to do. I started sending stuff to Dolores around January and I’ve been writing bits and pieces.”
Noel also plans to record another Mono Band album. “There are some songs I feel aren’t really the Cranberries’ sound, so I decided I’m going to try and maybe do another Mono Band album at the same time. I’m going to try and do both, but I want to take my time doing it,” said Noel.
Noel also told some stories about the band’s early years and revealed lots of technical information about the way he records his songs nowadays, so if you like these kind of details read the full version of the interview.
