The 'Changed The Way You Kiss Me' singer told NME that although his new album will still be electronic, it will have more of a rock edge.
"The new album is pretty much finished, " he explained. "It's still essentially electronic - all the producers are DJs or electronic producers, but influence-wise I didn't want to just reference the same people.
"This time I wanted to actually involve a bit more rock music," he continued "so a lot of the riffs, instead of being keyboards are all big guitar riffs.
"I'm not trying to make a grunge album or make a metal album," he clarified, "I'll leave that to professionals. It's just my starting point for a lot of the songs was specific bands that I like - Chili Peppers, Green Day... or Marilyn Manson."
Example also revealed that he is a big fan of Kasabian, after tweeting about the band multiple times in the last year
"I'm a huge Kasabian fan," he explained."They're probably in my top three bands ever along with Nirvana and The Kinks. I don't think people will hear any influences from Kasabian in my music but there are certain things that I pick up on from the lyrics or the riffs or even just the mood of it that I try to incorporate.
"My last album was called Playing in the Shadows," he added, "but I was originally going to call it 'Waiting in the Shadows' which is a line from 'Underdog' by Kasabian."
Example played at the Isle of Wight Festival on Friday (June 22) and is due to play T In The Park early next month (July 6).
