Having released the rather fine Losing Sleep album in 2010, Edwyn Collins is reportedly ‘working like the clappers’ on a new album, which is two thirds completed. There will also be an album released through iTunes in December, also to be entitled Down The Line.
This is rather sweet – and any new Edwyn Collins material has always got to be a good thing, right?
Given that it is quite hard to get hold of many of his records, both solo and with Orange Juice (well, as in buy – I dare say you can search online but that’s not the point really, is it?) I take great comfort from reading this:
“Also anticipate a series of releases of Edwyn’s solo catalogue. Deleted, lost and forgotten albums and other recordings will resurface; remastered and wrapped up in special, carefully prepared sleeves. He’s back where he always felt most comfortable, doing it all himself, with his unflinching eye for detail and beauty.”
