The Specials Confirm New Material Being Written

While members of The Specials have previously hinted at plans to record an album of new material, The Daily Star in the UK has a story today that would seem to confirm the band is writing new songs. Guitarist Lynval Golding is quoted as saying that the new material is inspired by the war in Afghanistan.

While various members of the band have released albums during the 1990's and early 2000's, the six current and original members last recorded together on 'More Specials' which was released in October 1980.

Hope it's good. Still wish JD was somehow involved. He could write a mean ska song.

The only thing that can be believed which is printed in the Daily Star is the date. One of the worst of the British tabloids.

I'd have mixed feelings about The Specials releasing anything without the involvement of JD. I haven't been too keen on recent stuff written/recorded by the likes of Lynval or Neville.
