Primal Scream are currently streaming 'It's Alright, It's OK', the lead single from their new album 'More Light', which is set for release on May 13.

Scroll down to listen to the track, which was written by Bobby Gillespie and Andrew Innes and was 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."

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

Primal Scream played a host of new material last night (March 21) at London's Royal Albert Hall, including '2013'.

The band were introduced onstage by Noel Gallagher, curator of this year’s Teenage Cancer Trust gig series, who said, "We've been trying to get this band for god knows how many years, they've been my friends for 20 years – truly one of the best bands ever to have come out of Britain."

Primal Scream are headlining this summer's Wickerman Festival in East Kirkcarswell, near Dundrennan, Scotland and Kendal Calling in the Lake District.
