Fall Out Boy have opened up about their recent studio session with Ryan Adams and by the sounds of things, they’re just as surprised about the situation as we are. Legend has it an album’s worth of tracks were recorded during this super cheeky session, which the band have described as simply hanging out.
As Fall Out Boy tell it, they had no expectations when they entered Adam’s Pax Am studio after management arranged the hook up. After a solid two days in the studio, however, “somehow some music got recorded” explained frontman Patrick Stump. The vocalist added:
“One of the most fun things about it [is] that it’s kind of this accidental thing, it’s analog, it’s just tape; he’d be rolling the tape, like 90 percent of the time, even when we weren’t sure what was happening. We would rehearse a song and then be like ‘Alright, let’s take it!’ And he’s like ‘We’re good, we got that one!”
Guitarist Joe Trohman reiterates just how impromptu the whole deal was.
“I think we didn’t know what to expect when we went in, which is part of the fun, and I think it’s part of what Ryan wanted out of it as well, when you’re in the studio, and you spend most of the time hanging out, it’s a good thing because then all of a sudden you’re like ‘Wow, how did I just record, like, ten songs?’ And that’s sort of what ended up happening; everything was off the cuff.”
There’s no word yet on when we will be able to hear the new material though if it’s anything like their latest opus, Save Rock And Roll, released as early as March of this year, the new jams could drop and any moment.
