A supermodel and a rock legend assist as the band's follow up to 'Exterminator' nears completion...
The Scream have been recording the follow-up to 2000’s ‘Exterminator’ album for much of this year in London with Andy Weatherall and Kevin Shields.
Now, Bobby Gillespie claims that Moss, who also appeared in the video for their 1997 single ‘Kowalski’, sings on a cover of the Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazelwood duet ‘Some Velvet Morning’. He told Ireland’s Hot Press magazine that her voice sounds “really European, like a young Nico”.
Moss has worked with Gillespie before – last year NME.COM uncovered a video of the pair working on a track called ‘Diamond Blue’, with Moss on vocals and Gillespie on acoustic guitar.
Gillespie also revealed that Robert Plant has guested on one track, ‘The Lord Is My Shotgun’. He said the collaboration came about because of a conversation on the street.
“Robert lives near our studio and we’re always having a chat”, he said. “I asked him ‘Would you like to blow some harp on a psychedelic blues song we’ve got?’ and he said, ‘What key’s it in?'”
A spokesperson for the band told NME.COM this morning (May 14) that the tracks are still being worked on, and it’s still unclear whether they will feature on the finished album.
Other song titles include ‘Deep Hit Of The Morning Sun’, the “absolute classic” ‘Autobahn 66’, ‘Rise’, ‘A Scanner’ and ‘Skull X’, which stands for “skull exploding” and is “like a fucking guitar holocaust”. Another track, ‘Space Blues 2’, features Martin Duffy on vocals.
The first track from the as-yet-untitled album will be a new single, ‘Miss Lucifer’, is set for release in late June.
