Primal Scream have completed a double-length long player for release in the “first quarter of next year”. Interviewed on-air by 6music’s Lauren Laverne, the band’s Bobby Gillespie said: “We’ve got an album finished, all recorded and mixed… it’s ready to go”.

Describing the LP as “one of the best ones we’ve ever done”, Gillespie defined its general ‘sound’ as “free rock, psychedelic… I’m not going to say ‘experimental’, but it’s a rock record. It’s kinda out there”.

Gillespie also revealed that, since many of the tracks clock in between seven to nine minutes, it’ll be released as a 2CD set. Apart from all this, the real reason for his and Laverne’s conversation was a forthcoming live session Primal Scream are recording for 6music. Set for broadcast in October, it may or may not offer a first listen to the band’s new material.
