have announced their new album "More Light"
will be released on May 6.
Frontman Bobby Gillespie
revealed the details of the album, the follow-up to 2008's "Beautiful Future"
, while speaking on Lauren Laverne's BBC Radio 6 Music show this morning (February 1).
Speaking about the album, he said: "It's a rock 'n' roll record, but modern rock 'n' roll. Pretty psychedelic rock, it's kind of guitar-driven but we use guitars in an orchestral way, not in the normal way people make rock records. I think we do it in a more interesting way. We weave the guitars in with electronics and other acoustic instruments to make the core sound."
Gillespie has also confirmed that the album has been produced by David Holmes
. Mark Stewart
of the Pop Group
and Led Zeppelin
's Robert Plant
will also appear.
