Primal Scream begin streaming new album ‘More Light’ – listen

Hear the band's new LP in four sections from today (May 7)

Primal Scream have started streaming their new album ‘More Light’ online.

Fans will be able to hear the band’s forthcoming LP in four sections over the next two days from today – you can hear Side A above. Side B will follow at 6pm today, Side C at 8am tomorrow (May 8) and Side D at 12pm tomorrow.

‘More Light’, which will be released on may 13, is the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Beautiful Future’. It was recorded at Das Bunker in London and Vox Studios in Los Angeles and mixed by Rich Costey at Eldorado Recording Studios, also in LA. The album sleeve has been designed by 2005 Turner Prize nominee Jim Labie.

Speaking about the album previously, frontman Bobbie Gillespie revealed: “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.”

Mark Stewart of The Pop Group and Led Zeppelin‘s Robert Plant appear on the record.

Primal Scream are headlining this summer’s Wickerman Festival in East Kirkcarswell, near Dundrennan, Scotland and Kendal Calling in the Lake District. To check the availability of Primal Scream tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
