Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil

Biffy Clyro's next album will be like a musical version of Gwyneth Paltrow movie 'Sliding Doors'.''

Biffy Clyro's next album will be like a musical version of Gwyneth Paltrow film 'Sliding Doors'."

The group are currently recording a double record, which they compare to the Hollywood movie, as it explores the different paths life can take depending on the decisions people make.

Frontman Simon Neil said: "We're going as over the top as we can. It's an album about a fork in the road and how your decisions can take you on one path or the other.

"One path is the right decisions and one path is the wrong decisions - and each album is going to represent each path... For want of a better comparison, a musical 'Sliding Doors'."

Simon admitted some tracks on the record are very experimental, including a "weird" country track.

He added to Q magazine: "We've got a progressive country song called 'Milky' that's probably one of the weirdest things we've ever done.

"It starts all prog, then it goes into a bluesy country vibe and then there's some slide guitar. There's stuff that's entirely on keyboards but we've got some big old rock songs too."
