Album update...but more like a reminder

Most of the new record is being recorded at State Of The Ark Studios, in Richmond, Surrey, England. This was previously mentioned in an NME article in January 2008. Links here and here.

Food for thought from a fellow contributor:
There was mention that mixing was taking place while the band where in the United States. I'm not sure where. I reckon a producer must have been involved somewhere, or at least a mixing engineer alongside The Verve. Otherwise its a pretty big risk for a record company to take. Perhaps Chris Potter may have been involved, and even more possibly Youth as he has just finished the new Futureheads album, so he would now be available. Who knows?

They've probably had a few days at Olympic too; this was the studio where they recorded most of the cuts on Urban Hymns over a ten day jam session. Check this link.
Overall, its now gone very quiet on album number four details, which is strange.
