Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil has opened up about the band's comeback album King Animal, which is due out November 13. Speaking with PremierGuitar.com, the rocker admitted that the album took longer to finish than he'd anticipated.
"We didn't have predetermined deadlines set by the record company - that was great. I originally thought we'd have the bulk of this done by the summer of 2011, but once we started rolling and felt that inertia of the music coming together, one of us would have to head out for a tour, or Adam [Kasper, producer] would end up having someone else lined up for the studio. I think the only issue this time around was when we'd reconvene and jump back into an unfinished part or song from the previous session," he explained.
He also revealed a few of his own personal preferences for work in the studio adding:
"One thing I've always done . . . was dim the lights, because I prefer the evening feel that a darker room presents. When the lights are up, it's like you're doing work in an office, but when it's more relaxed and a bit darker, I feel more relaxed and creative in that sort of intimate setting."
