Remember last week, when Mötley Crüe announced their retirement? They signed an agreement and everything! However, that agreement only agree that once their 72 date tour was over, they couldn’t tour again without all four of them doing it. It didn’t state anything about not making new music. In a recent interview with South Dakota radio station KSKY, the band’s Nikki Sixx says that they’ve got music written, but haven’t put it together yet. He also suggests that fans will be spared a full album.
“We have music written, [but] it’s not put together yet,” he said, adding “It’s hard, to be honest with you, to spend six, nine months to write eleven songs — all those lyrics… everything… the vocals, the guitars, the bass, the sonics, the mixing, the mastering, the artwork… You put it out and nothing [happens], because now people cherry-pick songs. So we go, ‘Why don’t we write songs and find vehicles to get one, two or four songs to ten million people rather than eleven songs to a hundred thousand people. That’s how we’re thinking. I don’t know if it’s right or wrong, but that’s how we’re thinking.”
This would make sense, since the last time the Crüe released music, it was a single, “Sex,” to kick off their 2012 tour. With The Dirt finally being made into a movie, it’s logical that a new song or two would make it into the film and/or soundtrack album. And knowing the band, they’ll probably release a song or two as the tour goes on. And considering they’ve already got six Greatest Hits albums out already to their nine studio albums, it wouldn’t be out of the realm of impossibility that they release another one that has “Sex” on it as well as another new song or two so their fan base can pick up yet another “best of.” Check out the interview below.
