Kaiser Chiefs worked with Xenomania producer Brian Higgins for the songs on Stay Together
. Higgins is behind hits like Cher's "Believe
" Girls Aloud's "Something New
" and Sugababes "Round Round
." Wilson said: "When we finished writing the last record we realised that the most important thing to everyone is what's going on in their lives. Their 'personal politics' and that's what this album is about."
"If Education, Education, Education & War
was our protest album, then Stay Together
is our relationship album," he added. "Brian [Higgins] brought a very different approach to song writing and recording, it was a steep learning curve but together we tried out new ideas and sounds and ended up with a new and fresh sounding Kaiser Chiefs album. Like no Kaiser Chiefs record you have heard before."
