Members of Garbage have confirmed to Rolling Stone that the band will work on the follow-up to this years comeback record, Not Your Kind of People, in January.
Speaking to The Guardian, Frank Ocean hinted that he may not make another record. The singer, who released one of the years best, Channel Orange, said, "Storytelling's a different thing. It's the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff. So much so that I might not make another album. I might just write a novel next. I don't know!"
The Gaslight Anthem, who released our top album of the year, has had an amazing 2012 are already thinking about working on their next record. Speaking to Rolling Stone, singer Brian Fallon discussed about what the band's next album might sound like. "We're searching for something new to do with songwriting, rather than just piecing together verses and choruses in more of a traditional sense," he said. "We're looking for some other thing – not some other genre, but something else. And it might not be the favorite of everyone, but [it] might be the 'weird' album coming up. I'm pretty sure it is."
