Design & Interview: Rick We're right now working on the cover of our next Photos courtesy of: Jerome Blin - Collectif album to come. Bellavieza Tell us more about your new album, "Recreation". We recorded our new album last summer. The recording process went very well as we worked in a great studio, Electrical Audio in Chicago, with a great engineer/producer John Congleton. The idea of this album is based on "Recreation" as leisure. The album before called "The Beginning And End Of Now" had a different concept based on immediacy. But it's really up to the listener to give meaning (or not) to the music, the words and the album name as a whole. The first one is just the 8 songs we liked better from those we wrote at that time. It was supposed to be demos in the first place. If your music were to be adapted into film, what story would it tell? The story of people who like music and life and try to have a great time and respect their friends and the nice people they meet around even if they know that the world is which they live is going wrong.
