My Little Pony checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@mylittleponyoslo) on Tuesday (June 22), talking about how plans to release a new album were thrown into chaos after the hard drive containing the songs the Norwegian indie pop band had worked on crashed. They write:
So. As you might have picked up by following our twitter, the carefully assembled zeros and ones that we planned to turn into our album through a careful mixing process have been lost into the empty void of Sjur Lyseid’s crashed, backupless harddisc. A hard blow, not only for the disc but obviously also for us, who had spend a good month recording it.
So now what? Well, we’ll have to record it again obviously, and luckily it’s going to be even better this time. We’ll get into the studio in September at the latest, and hope to release it just over Christmas.
