Primal Scream are set to release a new album this year. Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has recorded tracks with the band for the new record.

The acts have recorded together in the past, with Plant playing harmonica on 'The Lord Is My Shotgun' on the band's 'Evil Heat' album.

Plant has confirmed that he has recorded vocals this time around. Speaking to Mojo, he said: "I sang a bit on the Primals stuff because I think their references on looking back on the glorious past and the way they bring them into the contemporary world are fantastic."

Bobby Gillespie also spoke to Uncut about his band's new LP, confirming that the album has been produced by David Holmes and that Mark Stewart of The Pop Group will also appear.
