Ooohhhyeaah! The Kooks will be releasing Konk, their second album on Astralwerks on April 15, 2008.
Here’s the dish:
Taking its name from Ray Daviesâ€™ studio in North London where it was recorded, â€˜Konkâ€™ will be released in the US on April 15, 2008 on Astralwerks. â€œKonkâ€ follows up to their debut album â€˜Inside In, Inside Outâ€™, which was also recorded at Konk Studios and has sold close to two million copies worldwide since its release in 2006.
After recording the album over a seven week period in London, The Kooks recently decamped to LA, where they are putting the finishing touches to the album with producer Tony Hoffer. Track titles on â€˜Konkâ€™ include â€˜See The Sunâ€™, â€˜Shine Onâ€™, â€˜Do You Wanna (Make Love To Me)â€™, â€˜Disappearâ€™, â€˜Lonely Catâ€™, â€˜Swayâ€™ and â€˜Stormy Weatherâ€™.
