Fun. Confirm New Album Plans For Early 2014 As Follow-Up To 2012's 'Some Nights'

The 'We Are Young' trio head back into the recording studio at the start of next year to begin work again.

Fun. have confirmed plans to head back into the recording studio next year to start work on the follow-up to their phenomenally successful album 'Some Nights'.

The US trio released the record in 2012 to huge sales and a string of massive hits like 'We Are Young' and the 'Why Am I The One', and have revealed they expect to be working on the next one by early 2014.

"There's, like, hints of a game plan," guitarist Jack Antonoff confirmed to Billboard, when asked about the band's plans for their next record. "The way we work is pretty spontaneous and pretty quick.

"'Some Nights' was written and recorded in a two-month time period, and I think that's one of the elements that made it successful as an album," he explained. "It should be a documentation of a band in a moment, not a giant three-year process.

"So the next album will be the same thing," Jack promised. "I assume some time at the beginning of next year we'd like to be in the studio, but that all depends on when the feeling hits and when we have a concept that's worthy."

The Fun. star went on to admit that 'Some Nights' taught them they work best when given complete musical freedom, and told fans to expect the same honestly on the next album.

"We learned a lot of great lessons with 'Some Night's, the most important is that we made the album we wanted to make and we weren't really thinking about anything else besides that, and it just happened to have singles and be really successful," the Fun. guitarist added.

Fun. take their 'Most Nights Summer Tour' to Toronto, Canada this Saturday (6th July).
