TORONTO -- Three years after releasing All in Good Time, it's time once again for the Barenaked Ladies to head back to the studio.
Frontman Ed Robertson has confirmed that the Toronto band is set to begin recording a new album this week, with the goal of releasing something by late spring.
"(It's) awesome," he said with a laugh when asked Wednesday for details on the new material, before noting that the band had cooked up about 27 new songs.
"Honestly, I'm really proud of it."
All in Good Time, which opened at No. 3 on the Canadian charts, marked the band's first album following the departure of co-founding singer Steven Page in early 2009.
That record featured a stark, mostly monochromatic cover that suited a moodier set of material than some might have expected from the wry quartet.
Robertson didn't tip his hand as to the direction of the new songs, but he said the band planned to work with a bevy of producers.
