Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys announces new solo album plan

Frontman hoping to release a soundtrack and DVD

Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys announces new solo album plan
Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys has said that he is hoping to release the soundtrack to his film 'Seperado!' as his next solo album.

The film, which is showing at Cardiff's Soundtrack Film Festival on November 19, focuses on Rhys trying to trace his distant uncle Rene Griffiths - a guitarist who had moved from Wales to Patagonia, South America in 1974.

Rhys confirmed that he is looking for a distributor to release the film properly before revealing his plans for the soundtrack.

"We're going to show the film for the first time in November and hopefully someone will help me put out a DVD for release sometime next year," he told The Agit Reader. "I also did a soundtrack for it, so that will be my next solo album by default."

Rhys, along with 'Seperado!''s co-director Dylan Goch and journalist Will Hodgkinson will also take part in a Q&A session after the film's Cardiff showing.
