Simple Plan has been recording their upcoming sixth album since last summer, and recently revealed plans to finish recording in January. We’re halfway through the month already, and the band has just shared an “important update about the new album”! And… it’s a hilarious video! Simple Plan took the time to record a studio song all about, well, making an album that fans will have to wait a bit longer to hear. But they’re helping ease the wait with an amazing song with the best lyrics we’ve ever heard. Thank you, Simple Plan, for the laughs and melodies.
Watch the “important update” – our own special studio song – below:
New Simple Plan Album
Late in 2018, Simple Plan frontman Pierre Bouvier and dummer Chuck Comeau began writing new songs for the upcoming album. They’ve written with a few other songwriters, too, including Travis Clark of We The Kings. Early last year, Pierre gushed about the “phenomenal” new music they were working on. The men continued writing through spring.
Since then, Simple Plan has been in the studio recording album #6. They entered the studio in July, and in December, announced plans to finish recording the last four songs for the album in January. At that point they’ll be done recording, likely with just mixing and mastering left to finish up the album.
In a recent interview, drummer Chuck Comeau said the album will likely drop in spring 2020.
They’re also recording differently this time around. Frontman Pierre Bouvier recently revealed that the band plans to self-produce this time, rather than working with a producer, and that Simple Plan is no longer with Atlantic Records. They’re now indie… just like Green Day and Fall Out Boy seem to be aiming for after their respective new releases.
Pierre also described two songs he’s particularly excited for fans to hear. Alas, he can’t say much about them just yet.We’ll just have to wait until spring to hear them!
“Where I Belong”
Last October, Simple Plan teamed up with State Champs and We The Kings on their new single, “Where I Belong.” The collaboration was perfectly timed, as the three bands embarked on a tour shortly thereafter. Last month, the song got its own music video. It’s our first taste of Simple Plan’s new music, and along with our new studio song, it’ll have to tide us over until the full album drops!
Simple Plan’s last album, Taking One For The Team, came out in February 2016. It gave us the singles “Boom!,” “I Don’t Wanna Be Sad,” “I Don’t Wanna Go To Bed,” “Opinion Overload,” “Singing In The Rain,” and “Perfectly Perfect.”
They’re untitled 6th album, due in spring 2020, will be their first in four years. It will likely include “Where I Belong.” But probably not the studio song! At least not in that form.
For now, catch up on all that has gone into making Simple Plan’s upcoming album. Keep checking back here for all the latest music news.
