Over the past few weeks, Third Eye Blind hung out in London working on new material for a forthcoming album.
The band, responsible for late 1990s hits like Semi-Charmed Life, Jumper, Never Let You Go and How’s It Gonna Be, released their first record in 6 years, Ursa Major, in 2009.
Much like how fellow ’90s alternative act No Doubt recently posted a bunch of in-studio progress updates about their own studio progress, 3EB have been doing the same, and by all accounts they appear to be close to finishing up a new album (which would be the band’s fifth overall).
They’ve posted a ton of updates over the past couple weeks, and here are a few of the most revealing, in terms of progress & in-studio images:

Another video, revealing that Grammy-winning producer Martin Terefe is working with the band on the new material, with the caption:

Recently, 3EB released If There Ever Was a Time, a song that has strong connections to the Occupy movement that swept the nation in controversy a few months back. Here’s the music video for the tune, while we wait for some of this new material to find the light of day.
