New Phish Album To Be Variation Of Wingsuit

There hasn’t been much news about the status of the new Phish album, so we were happy to see a Rolling Stone interview with Mike Gordon about the LP and more. Gordon doesn’t reveal too much, but tells the mag the new album won’t be exactly the same as the Wingsuit suite the quartet debuted on Halloween.

“What we did on Halloween was not exactly. . .it was a lot of what the album is, but not exactly the same of what it’s going to be. It might be a slightly different song selection and a slightly different title. It’s not all figured out, but since that week in Nashville, I’ve been kind of out of the loop, although I am going back for something,” Gordon told Rolling Stone’s Patrick Doyle. He does mention two songs he wrote with Scott Murawski have made the cut and says Phish had a great week in Nashville following Halloween recording the album. Phish left room for such changes to arise by noting in the Playbill distributed to fans in Atlantic City that the album was “tentatively titled” Wingsuit and that “the majority (of songs) will end up on the new Phish album.”

Mike also talks about his new album, Overstep, due on February 25th. For a taste of Overstep take a listen to “Yarmouth Road”:
