‘Losing Sleep’ the new album album byEdwyn Collins will be released on Heavenly Recordings on September 13th. This will be his first album written since recovering from two brain hemorrhages in 2005. The album features Collins co-writing tunes with contemporaries (Johnny Marr, Roddy Frame of Aztec Camera) and progeny (Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos and Nick McCarthy, the Cribs’ Ryan Jarman, The Drums, and The Magic Numbers’ Romeo Stodart).
The title track, a northern soul stomp of a tune can be downloaded for free via his website & we highly recommend you do this. We will be giving the track a 7″ release & it will be backed with an instrumental version of the track as an old northern style dinked 7″.
The album artwork features a collection of Edwyn’s bird drawings which he’s been working on since 2005. A keen bird lover the drawings help form part of his recovery.
The album is now available to pre order from
Rough Trade & comes with an exclusive Edwyn compilation!
