Empire Of The Sun’s New Album Will Definitely Arrive In 2013

Written by Kiel Egging on November 24, 2012

That long overdue second album from Empire of the Sun is definitely set to hit the shelves in 2013 – according to one half of the band, Nick Littlemore.

Triple j reports that Littlemore will be churning out two albums in 2013 from his respective projects – one with Empire of the Sun “early next year” and another with Pnau bandmate Peter Mayes.

“We’ve been doing Empire of the Sun for the last 6 months,” the pair told The Doctor.

Mayes – who has also been helping Littlemore and Luke Steele on the Empire record – recently told Gigwise that the new record is “sounding amazing” and “really big.”

“One of the tricks with Empire is to have a certain sense of timelessness. Not nostalgia for the sake of it, but a certain musicality. Those sort of feelings go beautifully with Nick’s voice. It can be really futuristic, it can be anything. It’s not just a dubstep record that’s going to be cool for three months.”

UPDATE: 12/03/13

The band has posted a new teaser trailer for the album, containing snippets of new music, and announced a name and date for the new album. Check it out over here.

In regards to the new Pnau record – Mayes and Littlemore told triple j they’re trying to find time to work on the follow-up to 2011’s Soft Universe – but they’ve been unsuccessful so far.

“We’re just starting a new Pnau record at the moment but we just don’t have any time,” the duo said. However, they did confirm that the album would surface sometime in 2013.
