“It’s close, close, close,” Kimberly Perry said. “Depending on which one you ask I say 75 percent there on the song. He says we’re 90 percent there [referencing her brother] … so 80 something? 80 percent. We’re close.”
She added that the band took time off from the road to work on the new album.
“We’ve been working feverishly and nonstop, you know,” she said. “We really have never taken time off the road to make an album. We usually have been touring and kind of making it in between dates, but this time we really took a lot of time off to be in the studio and we can’t wait for you guys to hear it.”
The Band Perry have been tight-lipped on their forthcoming album but have revealed that they’ve been working with Pharrell Williams.
“We’re being really crazy about the different collaborations that we’re diving into,” Kimberly told CMT. “We got to hang out with Pharrell a couple weeks ago. He’s like a huge country music fan, and he also really loves what we do with harmony. One thing that we worked on with him was this song where all three of us sing different interwoven vocals on the verse and on the chorus.”
In an interview last year with Radio.com, Reid said the album has more of a “fun atmosphere around it.”
“When it even comes to the songs that we’re choosing to start working on, it’s all about, how does it make us feel? If it makes us feel good and if has a fun vibe about it, that is the path that we are walking down,” Reid said.
The Band Perry’s Pioneer became the band’s first No. 1 album on the Country Albums chart, also peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
