Underworld frontman Karl Hyde is set to release his debut solo album.

'Edgeland' was co-produced by Leo Abrahams and will be released on April 22. Scroll down to listen to album track 'Cut Clouds'.

The nine-track album was inspired by the 'hidden corners' of the city. Hyde says of the album: "For over twenty years, my love of cityscapes has grown and grown."

He continued: "The beauty of decay, tyre marks, crude graffiti, industrial noise, overheard conversations, epidemics of coffee bars and nights on the back seat being driven through cities by drivers who never sleep. A celebration of people's idiosyncrasies, mapping out my journeys with the stories they tell, edgelands where city meets scrub, where ragged ponies grazed annexed fields and the air smells chemical."

Karl Hyde will be touring the album, kicking off at SonarSound in Tokyo on April 7. UK dates will be announced shortly.

The 'Edgeland' tracklisting is:

'The Night Slips Us Smiling Underneath It's Dress'
'Your Perfume Was The Best Thing'
'Angel Café'
'Cut Clouds'
'The Boy With The Jigsaw Puzzle Fingers'
'Slummin' It For The Weekend'
'Shoulda Been A Painter'
'Shadow Boy'
'Sleepless'
