Edwyn Collins is to release an instrumental album.

The former Orange Juice singer told The Guardian, during his current tour of Australia, that he is currently working on the new record which will form part of the soundtrack for a documentary about himself, entitled In Your Voice, In Your Heart.

The film, which documents Collins' recovery after his stroke in 2005, which left him unable to walk or speak, is being helmed by Katy Perry: Part Of Me directors Edward Lovelace and James Hall. It is expected for release, along with the album, this summer.

Speaking about the album, which shares the film's title, Collins said: "I'm doing a new album at the moment! An acoustic one. It's a soundtrack album, and it's really good. One song has my vocals, but the rest of it's instrumental. It seems to be really good so far. Well, actually, it's finished: it's coming out in the summertime. It's exciting stuff!"

Last year, Edwyn Collins released his eighth solo album, titled 'Understated'. The album was self-produced alongside Seb Lewsley at London's West Heath Studios and featured Barrie Cadogan (Little Barrie, Primal Scream), James Walbourne (The Pretenders, Ray Davies), Carwyn Ellis (Colorama, The Pretenders), Sean Read (The Rockingbirds, Dexys), David Ruffy (The Ruts, Dexys) and Paul Cook (Sex Pistols).
