Edwyn Collins is to release a new LP, his eighth solo set to date, entitled ‘Understated’. Having already co-written two of its eleven component tracks with Richard Hawley, Collins tells BBC 6music the long player will be available on 13 Jan next year, defining its sound as “northern soul, crossed over with punk”.

Collins, who is soon to be honoured with an AIM Award for Outstanding Contribution To Music, will also appear in new documentary film ‘In Your Voice, In Your Heart’. Made by the people behind LCD Soundsystem’s ‘Shut Up And Play The Hits’ and featuring an original score composed by Hawley, it’s a part-fictional account of Collins’ 2005 stroke and subsequent recuperation. You can see a short trailer for it here.
