OH, THAT'S CHEERED US UP NO END: The sun is out, the sky is blue, there's not a cloud to spoil the view, and then bloody Jet pitch up and announce they've got another album's worth of material ready to go. It shouldn't come as a surprise, I guess - it's not like they'd have to sit around waiting for inspiration. The good news is they're going to spend time in the studio:

"The only thing for me is whether we have time between albums to sit back and layer the songs, work them out, figure them out, so they're really comfortable."

Yes, you do that, boys. Make sure anything approaching a rough edge is smoothed away. Take your time, see how comfortable you can make them - like a pair of slippers, perhaps, or an old cardigan where the pocket has been slightly mis-shapen from the years of carrying round a bag of Werthers Originals.

"It looks like we're gonna have that kind of time, because we've been successful enough to tell the record company how long we wanna spend in the studio. A lot of bands don't get that privilege, because for whatever reason they didn't sell enough records. Jet's not gonna be in that position."

And take full advantage of it, boys. We recommend that you spend at least seven or eight years in the studio. We'll send dinner over. And someone to check on you every week or so. Just don't come back out until you're really satisfied.
