Click above to watch the black and white video for the track, which is the lead single from their new album ‘More Light’, set for release on May 13.
The promo mixes vintage footage of New York and DIY shots of the band performing – including new bass player, Simone Butler, who replaced Mani, also of The Stone Roses – with slogans such as ‘abolish alienation’ and ‘occupy everywhere’.
The song was written by Bobby Gillespie and Andrew Innes and produced by David Holmes.
‘More Light’ 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. It will be released on the band’s own First International label through Ignition Records.
The album sleeve has been designed by 2005 Turner Prize nominee Jim Lambie.
Speaking about the album, Gillespie said: “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.”
Primal Scream are headlining this summer’s Wickerman Festival in East Kirkcarswell, near Dundrennan, Scotland and Kendal Calling in the Lake District.
