Everybody remember British post-punk outfit Editors? You'd be forgiven if they've slipped from your mind just a bit — it's been what they call a "hot minute" since the release of their last record, 2009's In This Light and on This Evening. Since Evening's release, guitarist Chris Urbanowicz left the band, and rumors bounced around a bit that perhaps that was all she wrote for Editors. Not so. Good news for Ed-Heads, as word popped up not long ago that not only are Editors still alive and kicking, but that they're recording their next album here in Nashville with noted production wiz Jacquire King, who's known for his work with Kings of Leon, Norah Jones, Modest Mouse, Tom Waits, Cold War Kids and many more.
Editors have uploaded a handful of videos to their YouTube channel — videos that feature little glimpses of their recording process and their time in Nashville. You can see their week-three clip above, and videos from weeks one and two are embedded after the jump. While I'm not coming across any official confirmation of where King and the Editors are recording, various footage sprinkled throughout those clips looks an awful lot like the renowned Blackbird Studio in Berry Hill — where artists including The White Stripes, George Jones and countless more have recorded, and where King has been known to work in the past. Click around at Editors' Twitter feed to find things like full song lists.
Welcome to Nashville, Editors, and make yourselves at home. But also maybe have your drummer brush up on those karaoke skills a bit — Music City ain't fuckin' around when it comes to karaoke.
