The Time have come for a new album. Morris Day and The Time recorded an fresh CD, their first in 18 years, and expect to tour again soon, band members said backstage at the Grammy Awards tonight.
‘‘We plan on going into the studio and getting out on the road,’’ Morris Day, wearing a gold suit, said after the group performed a set with Rihanna.
‘‘Don’t lie to them,’’ guitarist Jesse Johnson said. ‘‘We’ve got an album in the can that’s so ridiculous. We can’t believe we did it.’’
The group had been eating meals together the week before reuniting at the Grammys.
‘‘We’re having too much fun. We’ll keep it going,’’ producer Jimmy Jam said.
Of performing with Rihanna, Day said: ‘‘I think she is a sexy young lady. I have kids as old as her, but I did enjoy it. That did not deter me from noticing at all.’’
