Gavin Rossdale on Producing Bush’s New Album

Bush gets back in action today (March 10) with the release of Black And White Rainbows, the group's seventh studio album.

It's also the first produced solely by founder and frontman Gavin Rossdale, and he tells us it was a new adventure after working previously with producers such as Nick Raskulinecz, Jay Baumgardner and Bob Rock:

"Whenever I work with Bob, who you know I've worked with a lot and who I deeply respect and love, I always say the difference between me and him is he's always trying to put stuff in and I'm trying to take stuff out. So it's like, having no one around when I wanted to take stuff out, it just stayed out. He'd say, 'Nothing's changing.' I'd say, 'The words are changing!'"

 

Black and White Rainbows features 15 tracks, including the first single "Mad Love." Bush begins a North American tour on May 4 that mixes headline dates with festival appearances.
