Recently people’s love for Placebo was brought back into the limelight with the release of Once More With Feeling DVD and CD combination. Apparently that was just an appetizer as the band are getting ready to return to the studio to start recording their fifth album. Produced by Dimitri Tikavoi (Goldfrapp, John Cale), the new album should hit stores in 2006. Tikavoi worked in the past with Placebo on “The Ballad Of Melody Nelson” and “Running Up That Hill”.
In other Placebo news, Timo Maas’ new album that is called Pictures is slated to come out June 13 and will feature three tracks co-written with Placebo’s Brian Molko. The three songs will be “First Day”, “Pictures”, and “Like Siamese”. You can watch the video of “First Day”, the first single, by clicking here.
