“Meltdown’s going to be doom and gloom and Hyde Park’s going to be hands in the air”
This makes me so happy!
So he is basically saying that Hyde Park wil be full of "pop" songs.....

Would he be disappointed if he never made another album? “I would now, yeah. Because I’ve committed myself to going into the studio and creating songs for the band, which I haven’t done for 10 years. Meltdown has inspired me to do something new because I’m listening to new bands. I’m enthused by their enthusiasm. So if it doesn’t work, I’ll be pretty upset, because it will mean that the songs aren’t good enough.”
It's great to hear RS sounding genuinely creatively inspired to make new songs. Only 10 more years until the new album is finished!
Smith worries that, at 59, he has become a reactionary who scorns social media, smartphones and the like. “I’m at war with a lot of the modern world,” he says.
Yep, that's where it's at, brother. Low tech to no tech. "Get off my lawn, you kids!"
