    Producer Mutt Lange Returns With Nickelback
    October 24, 2008 - Rock and Pop

    By Gary Graff, N.Y.

    Working with Mutt Lange on Nickelback's new album, "Dark Horse," was "a dream come true" for Chad Kroeger, the group's frontman songwriter. And the reality, he adds, was "a great learning experience."

    "To be able to get into a room with him and just watch the way he does work...I learned a lot," says Kroeger, who produced the previous three Nickelback albums -- including 2005's "All the Right Reasons," which has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and spent a whopping 110 consecutive weeks in the top 30 of The Billboard 200.

    "We always said that the only way we'd let someone else really come in and start steering the ship was if it was gonna be the one and only Mutt Lange. So when he expressed interest ... you had to pinch yourself, really."

    It's not hard to understand why Kroeger and his bandmates would feel that way. The Zambian-born Lange has been associated as a producer and co-songwriter with some of the most successful rock albums in history, creating explosive, large-scale soundscapes for seminal releases by AC/DC ("Highway to Hell," "Back in Black"), Def Leppard ("Pyromania," "Hysteria") and Foreigner ("4") as well as albums by Bryan Adams, the Cars, Loverboy, the Boomtown Rats and the Corrs.

    Lange then brought his shimmering, polished sensibility to country with his soon to be ex-wife Shania Twain, helming the multi-platinum crossover smashes "The Woman in Me," "Come On Over" and "Up!" "Dark Horse" is Lange's first full-scale rock project since the Corrs' "In Blue" in 2000, and Kroeger says mutual friends helped to broker the deal.

    "I actually ran into a friend who was working with someone who used to work with Mutt," Kroeger explains. "He called me up and said, 'Hey, do you still want to work with Mutt Lange?' I said, 'Oh God, I would love to. The dude's my hero,' and he said, 'I'm working with one of his old engineers. Would you like me to get him to give you a call?' I was, like, very ecstatic. I couldn't wait for the opportunity. For us, just being on (Lange's) radar was compliment enough.

    "Then Mutt called me at the house. We just started talking, and he was really interested in how we recorded things and how we went through the songwriting process -- just absolutely everything. It turned out that we did a lot of things that were very similar in both those procedures, so it was just a great fit."

    Nevertheless, Kroeger says that when he went to work on songs with Lange in March at the producer's home in Switzerland, he "thought Lange was gonna want to go straight to a ballad or something mid-tempoish. So I played him a couple things that I thought were strong, and he was, 'OK, cool, but what have you got that rocks?' And I said, 'How about this?' and he said, 'That's alright, but what have you got that really rocks?' And I'm like, 'Wow, you want to focus right off the bat on a big rock song...'

    "So I said, 'OK, I've got this title -- 'You Look So Much Cuter with Something in Your Mouth,' and he was like, 'Perfect! That's perfect! Let's get started!' and off we went."

    Kroeger laughs when asked if he and Lange butted heads much during the process of writing and then recording "Dark Horse," both in Switzerland and at Kroeger's studio in Vancouver.

    "It's funny; a lot of people are asking that," he notes. But he says that things were mostly peaceable between Lange and the band. "I think Mutt was coming into a situation where he knew Nickelback fans were very happy with everything we'd been putting out so far. He didn't really want to change the band too much; he just wanted to bring a slightly different perspective and a slightly different influence."

    As for the things he learned from Lange, Kroeger puts most of it in the category of "nerdy studio talk."

    "It was leaving room for all frequencies," he explains. "Instead of dumping a whole bunch of low end on the kick drum and the bass and the guitars and winding up with this big wall of low end, he taught us to really put things in their own place and leave the guitars in the guitar range, especially depending on what key the song's in. We'd never really looked at it like that. We always wanted things to have lots of low end and be really boomy. He definitely educated us on the full spectrum of sound."

    Lange also taught Kroeger and his bandmates -- brother and bassist Mike Kroeger, guitarist Ryan Peake and drummer Daniel Adair -- about making that spectrum sound bigger, too. "He likes those big gang vocals, those 'heys' and 'yeahs,' " Kroeger explains. "That was new for us. There might be six of us sitting around a microphone, just screaming the same line over and over and over for, like, 20 minutes straight, and you start stacking it up and get this huge wall that sounds like ... an arena full of people.

    "That's the way Mutt pictures everything. Mutt looks at it one way and one way only -- it's you standing on stage in front of nine million people. And when it's a love song, it's you singing to a girl in the first row. And when it's a rock song, it's gotta be you singing to ever single person, with their hand pumping in the air. That's how he looks at it, and he never wavers."

    Which is all well and good, Kroeger adds -- until you're the guy who has to recreate that on stage, which is what Nickelback will be doing when it starts touring the world to promote "Dark Horse" in February.

    "He's not willing to budge when it comes to screaming higher and harder," Kroeger says with a laugh. "There were a few times where I would have to say to him, 'Listen, I'm gonna have to sing this live,' and he was like, 'Yeah, but we're not gonna sacrifice this record for that sentiment.' So I really just had to suck it up. You gotta figure the guy knows what he's doing."

    Exclusive: Nickelback Talks New Album


    oktober 24, 2008 , 12:45 AM ET

    Gary Graff, Detroit
    Chad Kroeger laughs when asked if the phenomenal sales for 2005's "All the Right Reasons" gave confidence to Nickelback as it set out to make its sixth studio album, "Dark Horse."

    "No, because look what we have to try to live up to," says Kroeger, who co-founded the quartet in 1995 in Alberta, Canada. "There's a mountain sitting behind us. We've got to try and put something out now that's going to stand up to that. So for us, the bar has been raised ridiculously high."

    "Dark Horse," which comes out Nov. 18 on Roadrunner and was co-produced by Mutt Lange, certainly has a target to clear. Buoyed by seven multiformat hit singles and five No. 1 videos-and apparently unaffected by widespread critical drubbing-"All the Right Reasons" has sold 10 million copies worldwide, according to Roadrunner, and spent a staggering 110 consecutive weeks in the top 30 of the Billboard 200. It fell off the chart Oct. 11 after a 156-week run, the longest registered in 11 years.

    "All the Right Reasons" also took off in a big way this summer in Europe, meaning Kroeger and his bandmates-brother and bassist Mike Kroeger, guitarist Ryan Peake and drummer Daniel Adair-were multitasking across two continents as they recorded "Dark Horse" and promoted its predecessor.

    "We've never left the previous album cycle," Roadrunner president Jonas Nachsin says. "That's got to be a seriously positive sign going into a new one. It's become such a monster to try to put our arms around, we're just doing the best we can to guide it into fruition at this point."


    In his first interview about the new album, Kroeger -- who started working with Lange ("The dude is my hero," he says) on "Dark Horse" in March in Switzerland -- acknowledges that he "would've liked a longer break" for himself. But he also recognized it was time for more Nickelback music in the marketplace.

    "If you're a fan of the band and you went out and got 'All the Right Reasons' the first week it was released, you'd be waiting for new material for, like, three years now," Kroeger says. "So it was definitely time for us to make sure that we had a new album and some new songs for the fans."

    Haven't heard it yet.

    I remember thinking they were a fluke with "How You Remind Me"/Silver Side Up, but it seems the last one was even bigger

    I can't understand why though, "Rockstar" was...annoying at best.
    Incredible how they picked up where Creed had left and managed to become even bigger
    I know Creed had a Diamond album, but that was the late 90's...

    I like the title mentioned in the first article:
    'You Look So Much Cuter with Something in Your Mouth'

    Certainly Nickelback. With their popularity in the US, the latest album going 7x platinum plus it's in late november the debut week in the US should be somewhere between 500k and 1 million

    The album title is amazing I think. It has so much potential to make an incredible cover as well.

    Hope this album is big in 2009.

    Not too good then - they are way bigger in the US then the UK though so probably as good as could be expected with the other big releases out...

    Whoa! There's some really whacked out people here. Beyonce is of course hitting #1, and she's barely going to do 500k. Nickelback and Cook are fighting over #2 with 250-350k. Out of all three, Nickelback is of course going to sell more overall.

    Nickelback have done really well in the UK. Gotta Be Somebody has only just scraped the top 20, and is set to have a similar chart run to 'Rockstar', and considering 'All The Right Reasons' only hit #13 on initial release, top 5 is wicked.

    Nickelback cashes in on charts
    By JOHN WILLIAMS

    Nickelback rode their new album "Dark Horse" all the way to No. 1 on the Canadian charts this week.

    The Alberta rockers exploded to the top on sales of just under 60,000 copies, according to data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

    It marks the fourth straight No. 1 album for the group -- "All the Right Reasons" (60,000 copies sold) did it in October of 2005, "The Long Road" (45,000) accomplished the feat in October of 2003, while "Silver Side Up" (43,000) hit No. 1 in September of 2001.
