“If it wasn't something we could fully get behind and believe in, I think the band was going to be over," Shears said. “If we put out anything sub-standard it was curtains for Scissor Sisters," he added. “We worked on a record for about a year and a half but we shelved it. We shelved it about a year ago," Shears said.
“I ended up moving to Berlin for a couple of months and we decided to start a new record from scratch, and we started it last June. So this record was written very quickly," the 31-year-old singer added. Referring to the collection of songs originally intended for the third album, Shears said: “In my heart I knew it wasn't right, I didn't really know what it was trying to say. It left me a little bit cold."
