'Hello Sunshine' is backed with tempting extras...

SUPER FURRY ANIMALS have confirmed full details of new single ‘HELLO SUNSHINE’, which will be released to coincide with their autumn UK tour.

The single is out on October 13, the same day the tour kicks off at Stoke Keele University. It’s the second track to be lifted from the band’s Top Five album ‘Phantom Power’, following the Top 15 success of ‘Golden Retriever’ in July. The CD features new tracks ‘Cowbird’ and ‘Sanitizzzed’, the latter thought to date back to the sessions for the band’s 2001 album ‘Rings Around The World’. The DVD also features those tracks with Pete Fowler animated wallpaper, while the picture disc 7″‘s B-side is ‘Cowbird’.
