April 14th will see the release of `Konk', the eagerly awaited new album from The Kooks. It is their second album, and the follow-up to their hugely successful 2006 debut `Inside In/Inside Out' which sold some two million copies worldwide and spawned massive singles `She Moves In Her Own Way', `You Don't Love Me', `Sofa Song', `Eddie's Gun', `Ooh La' and `Naïve'.
`Konk' was recorded over a six week period at the tail-end of 2007 in Ray Davies' Konk Studios in north London, plus a week at Los Angeles' Sound Factory. The sessions once again united the group with esteemed producer Tony Hoffer (Beck/Air/The Fratellis). Explaining how he came to suggest the album title, guitarist Hugh says, `I just started thinking how cool the studio is, and how much of a part of our sound it is.'
`Konk' features twelve tracks. There's `Gap' which is classic Kooks, and `Shine On' which finds Luke exploring hitherto unchartered lyrical territory over the loveliest of melodies. It's destined to become another lynchpin in The Kooks' live set. First single `Always Where I Need To Be' is a tumbling rocker with a `do-do-do, do-do-do-do' refrain that might just be the catchiest thing they've ever done. `Sway' and `Mr Maker' are other album highlights.
The Kooks release 'Konk' on April 14th on Virgin Records, preceded by their new single `Always Where I Need To Be' on March 31st.
