Album set for December release

A tribute album for Cardiacs frontman Tim Smith featuring XTC‘s Andy Patridge, Ultrasound, Oceansize and more is set to be released on December 6.

Knifeworld and Julianne Regan are also set to feature on the album, named ‘Leader Of The Starry Skies – A Tribute To Tim Smith’. The songs will be re-workings of compositions by Smith – the tracklisting is yet to be finalised.

The profits from the album will go towards medical costs for Smith, who suffered a stroke in 2008 and continues to be treated in hospital.
