Snow Patrol Frontman Working On Solo Projects

Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody has revealed that he is currently working on two solo projects. The first is an abstract vocal album entitled 'Listen Tank', which he is working on with producer Jacknife Lee, the second is a country album called 'Tired Pony'.

Speaking to BBC Newsbeat, Lightbody said that he and Lee, who has produced the last three Snow Patrol albums, have been working on 'Listen Tank' in spare moments in their schedules. He said: “We've just been recording and playing instruments on it together. I call it Russian submarine music. I don't know why, there's just lots of voices on it with me using my vocals as an instrument rather than a guitar. It sounds like some underwater choir”.

As for the country album, he says: “I've loved country for a long time. I always thought I had a country album in me and it turns out I did. I don't know whether people will dig it or not. It's just something I wanted to get out of my system”.
