Mike Gordon Says The New Phish Album Will Be a Little Different from Wingsuit
Mike Gordon has revealed a few details about Phish’s forthcoming studio album in a new interview with Rolling Stone. The bassist told the publication that the actual LP will be a bit different from the Wingsuit “album” that Phish “covered” during their 2013 Halloween how at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, saying:
We went right from Atlantic City to record, and it was a great week in Nashville, a whirlwind…What we did on Halloween was not exactly. . .it was a lot of what the album is, but not exactly the same of what it’s going to be. It might be a slightly different song selection and a slightly different title. It’s not all figured out, but since that week in Nashville, I’ve been kind of out of the loop, although I am going back for something.
Gordon also told Rolling Stone that he wrote at least two songs on the new album with longtime collaborator Scott Murawski. He also mentioned that his upcoming solo tour will utilize videos and technology in an interesting ways, adding:
I get to enjoy just working on my own stuff and other people kind of work on [Wingsuit] and send me a link and say, ‘How is this is sounding?’ [It] works out well because I’m having so much fun stuff going on with my tour and album, you know: videos and technology for the stage. I’m trying to do some groundbreaking stuff.
As previously reported, Gordon will hit the road with his solo band on February 28. The bassist also recently created a “Yarmouth Road”-themed Spotify playlist in anticipation of his upcoming solo album, Overstep, which is set for release on February 25 via ATO.
