"He said, 'I'm not here to recreate your demos. We're here to get creative.' There were some directions that were taken that were so unbelievably far off from where the songs began," King recently told Billboard.com. "Some of the songs became '70s groovy sex music somehow."
Among the songs expected to make the cut are "The Song in 5/4," "Montreal" (which King has played live by looping the guitar and bass parts) and "So Much for So Little" (which King says "sounds like an Air song").
King, who guests on the new Foo Fighters album, "Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace," and contributed score material to the new Sean Penn-directed film "Into the Wild," can be both heard and seen in the new Warner Bros. film "August Rush."
The artist recorded two new tracks for the movie, and also appears as a hand-double for a character who is seen playing guitar.
King will tour in support of "Dreaming of Revenge" throughout 2008.
