It was supposed to be a day off but Jacknife Lee was spotted with the band making their way to the Wisseloord Studios last week.
Seems that on Thursday - supposed to be a rest day between the three Amsterdam shows - band and key crew members were holed up in the legendary Wisseloord studios in the city of Hilversum, south-east of Amsterdam.
Also in the house were producer Garrett "Jacknife" Lee - see our interview
- and strings arranger James Banbury whose previous credits include Snow Patrol, Aqualung, Joy Zipper, Katherine Jenkins and Kasabian.
No confirmation as to what was going on inside Studios 1 and 3 until late into Thursday night but maybe there's a clue in the band's last visit to Wisseloord Studios.
That was during the European leg of PopMart where they worked on a remix of a
rather wonderful song called 'Please' - produced by Howie B and with strings
arranged by Craig Armstrong. The track was subsequently released as a single in September 1997 - the fourth single from the album Pop.
More news as we get it.
