Editors - Papillon

Editors third album In This Light And On This Evening gets the album playback treatment.

X-Posure's John Kennedy is joined by singer/guitarist Tom Smith and drummer Ed Lay to talk through their latest offering.

Freaked out by their new direction? Loving the synths? The pair talk through the inspiration behind their new opus. You can listen to the full hour-long interview again, right here.

Has it all changed for Editors since their last album? Tom talks about becoming a Dad and Ed mentions he’s getting married. They also kick off their discussion by talking through title track, In This Light And On This Evening.
