Edwyn Collins film to premiere at SXSW
'The Possibilities Are Endless' tells the former Orange Juice man's incredible story
The documentary, titled The Possibilities Are Endless, is directed by Edward Lovelace and James Hall, who helmed Katy Perry: Part Of Me, and tells the former Orange Juice frontman's incredible story, focusing on his recovery from a stroke in 2005.
Collins recently 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 the documentary.
Speaking about the album, he 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).
SXSW runs between March 7 and 15 in Austin, Texas.
