Idlewild have revealed their eighth album will be released next year ahead of a European tour.
The Scottish rockers will release Everything Ever Written on February 9. It will be their first album since ending their five-year hiatus in September. Their last record was 2009’s Post Electric Blues.
Frontman Roddy Woomble says: “The album was predominantly written on the Isle of Mull. The record soundtracks a period of transition. Working without time constraints gave the whole thing a creative freedom. Idlewild is a new band to me now. I’m excited for the future.”
Everything Ever Written will be Idlewild’s first album to feature new members Luciano Rossi and Andrew Mitchell. A trailer for the album has been made available. View it below.
The album can be pre-ordered now, with a range of packages available. Album track Collect Yourself is available as an immediate download as part of the pre-order packages.
They’ll play five UK shows in March next year, starting with a double-header in Glasgow.
