Q. Dear Oracle,

Ghost Stories is out now for over two months. That isn't very long, but though I have a question about the next album:

Chronologically, there is the year of the album, and in that same year and the year after that there is the tour. After the tour the band takes a year/half a year of rest and then starts recording. This all takes 3 years (or 2 between Parachutes an AROBTTH).
But now there is no tour. Does this mean we can expect the next album in 2016 instead of 2017? I'd love to know that, if possible.

Greetings from the Netherlands,
Isabelle


The Oracle replies:

I can see why people are working out what has gone before but in this case it doesn't necessarily give an indication of what will follow.
At this stage I obviously can't comment but as you see, the Ghost Stories tour and promo was not comparable to previous album campaigns so it would be useless speculating just yet.
