Kasabian fith album fact: The band’s addictive numero 5 record is named after its running time, which is 48 minutes and 13 seconds. Wow!
The artwork for the album is the same as the mural the band painted on a shop on Kingsland Road in London’s Dalston.
Guitarist Sergio Pizzorno, who wrote and produced the album:
“I felt that we had the confidence to be more direct, more honest with this album. I started to strip away layers rather than to just keep adding.”
Frontman Tom Meighan:
“Less is more, you know? It’s direct. It is what it is. Just listen to it. We’ve had the confidence to lay ourselves bare. Serge has stripped it right back. It’s unbelievable.”
