Beady Eye's Andy Bell and Gem Archer have spoken to the NME about the album that wasn't and not working with The Black Keys 'Dan Auerbach'.
Gem Archer said “At one point, we were going to Nashville with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. The timing didn't work out, but that would have been a completely different tangent.”
Andy Bell added “If we'd worked with Dan Auerbach on this album we might have done the same songs, but taken them in a different direction to what we did with Dave Sitek. But the important thing for Beady Eye was that we were open to a direction that would take us somewhere else. It was like, “We wanna bounce off somebody, work with somebody.”
The NME is on sale now digitally and in stores.
