The pair are set to release second collaboration album in May

Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan will release their second collaboration album, ‘Sunday At Devil Dirt’, later this year.

The pair – ex-members of Belle & Sebastian and Screaming Trees respectively – released their first joint album, the Mercury Music Prize-nominated ‘The Ballad Of The Broken Seas’, in 2006.

As was the case for that album, Campbell has written the music for their forthcoming album, with Lanegan providing joint vocals.

Before the album release on May 5, Lanegan will release another collaboration record – ‘Saturnalia’ by The Gutter Twins, aka Lanegan and former Afghan Wings frontman Greg Dulli. That’s out next week (March 3).

See tomorrow’s (February 27) NME for a review of the album and the pair’s recent Shockwaves NME Awards Show in London.
