Years and Years talk new music

Years and Years have revealed they’ll release new music later this year.

The band revealed they have started the very, very early stages of their second album, but they won’t actually get into the studio until later this year.

“I’ve started writing songs,” frontman Olly Alexander told Idolator. “I don’t know how it’s going to sound because I’m just getting material together and ideas.

“Then we’ll get into the studio later in the year and start producing stuff and making the actual sounds. Whenever that’s going to be.

“I’m kinda just letting myself be as open as possible. Not trying to put much pressure on myself.”

As for who they’d like to work with on the follow-up to 2015’s Communion, Olly replied: “I just want to work with people that I really like and have brilliant minds.

“I guess I’ve been trying to work with Dev Hynes for a really long time and we keep missing each other, but I really hope that will happen.”
