Sumner and Gillespie team up in the studio

NEW ORDER‘s Bernard Sumner has collaborated on a track for the new Primal Scream album, which is being slated for release later this year.

Sumner, who revealed last week that he’d also collaborated with The Chemical Brothers on their forthcoming album, said: “I’ve just been with Bobby working on a Primals track. It’s hard to say what it’s going to sound like when it’s finished but at the moment it’s pretty raw. I’ve got loads of respect for Bobby Gillespie.”

No further information is available about Primal Scream‘s forthcoming album, although it’s known that Gillespie and the rest of the band have been working in their Primrose Hill studio almost constantly since ‘Vanishing Point’ came out in summer 1997.
