We rehearsed in Electric Lady and it was working so we went with it. It was touch and go for a while but we finished up at Electric Lady (recording studio) in New York. We recorded ten or 11 songs and there is other stuff floating around.” He added: “We hashed it out all together like the good old days. It’s a legendary studio and it is not far away from us all, apart from Nick who lives in Los Angeles, but he made the trip out to record.” TRACKLIST Tap Out 3:41 All The Time 3:01 One Way Trigger 4:02 Welcome To Japan 3:50 80s Comedown Machine 4:48 50/50 2:43 Slow Animals 4:20 Partners In Crime 3:33 Chances 3:24 Happy Ending 2:53 Call It Fate, Call It Karma 3:24
