Kasabian's new album was inspired by Motown.
The English rock band, which is comprised of Tom Meighan, Serge Pizzorno, Chris Edwards, and Ian Matthews have admitted their new LP titled 'For Crying Out Loud', which is set to be released next month, was influenced by the iconic seventies era when guitarists had ''strong melodies and great riffs''.
The bands 36-year-old guitarist told the Evening Standard Online: ''On a grand scale we want to save guitar music from hell and be the saviours of rock and roll. In reality, I wanted to try and make an album full of really good, well-crafted songs.
''I was thinking about the Seventies, when guitar music was hitting that beautiful point, with strong melodies and great riffs. And I was thinking about Motown and how Berry Gordy had this philosophy of, 'Get them within the first eight bars.'''
Pizzorno has admitted the lead track on the compilation 'You're In Love With A Psycho' was penned within a swift 15 minutes.
Speaking previously, he said: '''You're In Love With A Psycho' is one of the first tunes I wrote on the album, for the album. It took about 15 minutes. It just flowed. I didn't really think and all the lyrics came.''
