This morning the news is bounced on major music sites: English newspaper Wednesdays Mirror (already famous for its fake scoop) surprise announcement that Jay is apparently planning to leave the world of music.
Personally I have absolutely no weight given to the news and I just carry the wording only Forum Jamitaly just to collect your comments and discuss (again) how sad to construct items to fill the columns of a newspaper.
However in the afternoon arrives dry denial from the official site with a statement that you carry the following:
OK, so there is a story in today’s Mirror implying Jay is quitting the music business: Needless to say they’ve got it completely wrong! You see, in a quick chat with one of the paper’s journalists following his record breaking Gig in the Sky yesterday, Jay mentioned he was taking time out to update his home studio and take some time off before the band go back in to start writing a new album later in the year. He also talked about working on new arrangements of songs so next time they go out on tour they have fresh take on the tracks they play live perhaps incorporating strings or horns. Perhaps they should listen next time! When they gonna learn? On seeing the way his chat was reported today in the Mirror Jay said “As usual they got it wrong for a cheap headline! All I said was that we’re taking a bit of time out to get the studio refurbished and we’ll be back making music in a few months time. There’s no way I’m quitting the music business – now I am out of my long contract with SonyBMG we have so many options open to us we’re just going to take our time and get it right – its just getting interesting!”
