Kodaline Talk New Sophomore Album

(Radio.com) Considering the breakout success of Kodaline's 2013 debut album, In a Perfect World, featuring 'All I Want" (which received an extra boost from being highlighted in the movie and soundtrack for The Fault in Our Stars), making a follow-up might seem like stressful process.

For Kodaline, however, that success only ramped up internal concerns about what the band should do next. 'I think when we finished the first album, we were already pretty nervous about the second," admits Kodaline frontman Steve Garrigan when asked if the cliche is true about bands having their entire lives to prepare for their debut album followed by the pressure of turning around a sophomore release in just a year or so. 'It really is kind of like that."

For the Irish quartet, the remedy was to basically never stop creating new music. 'We just kept writing. Eventually when we got around to going into a studio, it all came together," Garrigan explains about Kodaline's recently released second full-length, Coming Up for Air. 'We really didn't expect to get this album finished as quickly as we did. You can't let pressure get in the way. You've got to just go with it, really. We've already started thinking about the third album. It's a learning curve." Read the full interview here.
