Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis told NME that he has been working with the legendary Tony Allen for the former Fela Kuti drummer's upcoming record. He said: "I’ve been writing with Tony Allen, Fela Kuti’s drummer. I started doing some tracks with him last year and then I was on tour. So I went back to finish them in Paris. So he’s writing a record and hopefully some of the tracks we’ve been working on will be on that album." He added: "“It was awesome. He’s 76. He smokes hash all day. He drinks whiskey. He basically invented a genre with Fela Kuti. He’s like an octopus on the drumkit. He’s an incredible drummer. It’s been nice just to be creative. I really want to have a bit of a break before we start writing for Foals, so it’s the perfect cross point. When I’m in my house and I’m not writing anything I start to go a bit mental."

The singer also said that Foals are currently not in the studio despite rumors, he said: "I have to do something so this is the perfect thing to do that isn’t Foals. It’s been a real honour to get to write with him. That’s what I’ve been doing. I’ve been writing bits here and there, but I don’t know if it’s for Foals yet. We’re not in a hurry.”

Speaking to Triple J, Wombats frontman Matthew Murphy said that the band are working on new music. He said they are writing and recording in L.A., adding: "We’re making an effort to not take as long as we have done between previous albums so this one’s going to be out quicker than you would think. It’ll be the back-end of the summer – if not the album then a single.”
