Groupie chatted with Peter Mayes, one half of Pnau, yesterday and the electro muso let slip that there’s a new Empire of the Sun record on the way.
To paraphrase Peter the album is basically going to be the best thing ever, and they’ve been working on it for an EPIC ten months time. “We’re 100% focused on Empire of the Sun right now” he said.
It feels like ages since Pnau’s Nick Littlemore and the Sleepy Jackson’s Luke Steele (with Peter Mayes on production) released ‘Walking On A Dream’ back in 2008. The bar has been set very high but Peter assured us that the new material is very, very exciting.
Stay tuned for further EOTS details and more on the Peter Mayes interview in the next issue of Groupie Magazine out August 1.
