‘Everything Ever Written’ also features previous single ‘Every Little Means Trust’. April saw the release of a video for the song that follows This Is The End star Jay Baruchel as he wanders the Scottish countryside.

Speaking in a statement, Baruchel said he was “floored” by the collaboration, adding that the band have been the soundtrack to his life “since I first heard them in Bristol when I was 19. To say that I’m excited would be an understatement. I am proud and honoured and kind of still floored that I get to be a part of their work in any way whatsoever”.

Idlewild are currently in the middle of a 16 date world tour, covering the UK, USA and Japan. They return to Britain next month for a string of shows.
