Primal Scream are set to release a brand new album in early 2013.

The band will follow 2008's 'Beautiful Future' with their as-yet-untitled 10th studio album. Speaking to Q magazine, the band's frontman Bobby Gillespie said that the record featured "sophisticated" production and arrangements. He explained:

"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."

Gillespie added: "The songwriting has got better! Live we're a guitar rock'n'roll band but when we make records... it would boring if we just made guitar records, we've got our own way of doing things. It's Primal Scream music."

Earlier this year Primal Scream announced My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe as their new touring bass player.

She replaced Gary 'Mani' Mounfield in the band's line-up. Mounfield left to rejoin The Stone Roses for their lucrative reunion tour.
