Coming just weeks after announcing the US release date of his new album, 'Losing Sleep', irrepressible Pop-Jock, Edwyn Collins has revealed his long-awaited return to Stateside shores for a series of live dates.
Shortly after the album hits stores on March 8th; through Heavenly Recordings/Cooperative Music USA, Edwyn will be gearing up in New York and SXSW. These will be his first shows in the US since his acoustic shows in 2003 and his first full-band performance in years.
'Losing Sleep' features tracks co-written with Johnny Marr, Roddy Frame, Alex Kapranos & Nick McCarthy of Franz Ferdinand, Romeo Stodart of The Magic Numbers, Ryan Jarman of The Cribs, and The Drums - and is the first album Edwyn’s written and recorded since his serious illness in 2005.
UK fans will know it and love it already. Now it’s the turn of you yanks.
