Lynn Hoffman, host of the A&E series “Private Sessions,” spoke with Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook and confirmed the duo – known as Squeeze – will officially reunite and start working on a new album, their first project together in over 10 years.
Tilbrook said “I would never have thought that we got back together again after the last time we split up I thought that was it for us. In a weird way I was sort of happy with it, I was happy with my solo world and Chris was in his solo world… but it’s so nice to have the Squeeze thing back together again… we are going to work together on a record, a new record, and start writing together again…”
The news from Squeeze comes from a taping of the A&E series “Private Sessions,” a weekly one-hour music and performance series hosted by Lynn Hoffman. The one-hour episode, premiering Sunday, October 5 at 9 AM ET/PT, features performances of their smash hit songs “Tempted,” “Goodbye Girl,” “Pulling Mussels (From the Shell),” and “Another Nail In My Heart.”
