|Al Mancini of ABC Radio's ePrep is reporting that VELVET REVOLVER have set "Libertad" — the Spanish word for freedom — as the working title for their new CD.
Speaking to ABC Radio's ePrep entertainment reporter on the red carpet at the Radio Music Awards at the Aladdin Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Monday (Dec. 19), VELVET REVOLVER singer Scott Weiland explained "the title that I'm sort of kicking around is … 'Libertad'," before adding "that can mean a lot of things."
Confirming recent statements by other members of his band, Weiland explained that he wants the band's second CD to be a concept record.
"The great rock and roll records were albums," he told ABC Radio's ePrep. "It wasn't about ten to twelve songs just thrown together so it can support three singles, which is sort of what records are about today."
The singer said that he's hoping to emulate "the great records of yesteryear" like THE ROLLING STONES' "Exile On Main Street" and PINK FLOYD's "Dark Side of the Moon".
"This band and the bands that we come from, we've had a lot of hits, and we can prove that we can write hits," Weiland explained. "So on this album, I've set the bar really high. I have an idea in mind."
