Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody has told the NME that the band have scrapped what was to be their seventh studio album and started again.

Lightbody says that he’s written some new “mind-boggling stuff” and wants to put that out instead. Though it sounds like he might also have realised that putting out a load of off cuts from the band’s previous album, ‘Fallen Empires’ (released last November), wasn’t that great an idea.

He said: “We recorded a second album during the ‘Fallen Empires’ session. But we’ve scrapped that one now. The songs I’ve been writing recently are light years away from anything I’ve ever done. It’s mind-boggling stuff”.

He added that the band planned to record with a number of different producers on the new album, including regular collaborator Jacknife Lee: “We’ll be working with Jacknife again, he’ll always be in the Snow Patrol camp, but he has suggested we try a few other producers as well”.
