Garbage have announced plans to release a new album in 2014, NME reports.

The band's producer and drummer Butch Vig has said they're not going to leave it as long to get out their next LP as they did between 2005's "Bleed Like Me" and last year's "Not Your Kind of People."

"I think we want to get going quicker. We'd like to see a record come out next year. We have a couple offers to play, but we may try to go into the studio in June and start working on another album," said Vig.

He continued: "We're all excited about that. We don't really have any songs started yet, but we all have ideas for songs. I have little riffs and things floating around in my head ... If we could get started some time in the summer and finish close to the end of the year, we could have it out in the spring or summer of next year, which would be cool."

Garbage have recorded a version of the Bruce Springsteen-penned Patti Smith hit "Because The Night" for this year's Record Store Day. The band recorded the cover with last year's touring partners Screaming Females and their frontwoman Marissa Paternoster.

Of the limited 3,000 edition single, which will come out on April 20, Vig said:

"We did it old-school style. They came out to Hollywood and we went into a big tracking room and recorded Phil Spector style ... We cut it live and did very few overdubs, did everything in a day and it came out pretty great. Marissa plays, I think, a 48-bar guitar solo at the end, that girl can shred like Eddie Van Halen, no kidding."

Excited about new Garbage release? Should we wait for it after last year's 'Not Your Kind of People'? Comment below.

    Marissa Paternoster's 48 bar solo should get its own article. Glad to see Garbage back at it, though. Aside from creaming my pants over 1990's Shirley Manson they always impressed me with their efforts. (Butch Vig eats babies)
    That garbage has more plans in it's existence than i have in my life time. I wouldn't have known.
