Primal Scream will play their classic album ‘Screamadelica‘ in it’s entirety at a gig at the London Olympia on November 27th, it was announced today.
Seen as a departure from the band’s early sound, Primal Scream took DJs Andrew Weatherall and Terry Farley on board to produce ‘Screamadelica’, which went on to showcase a variety of house/dance influences. The record featured the hit singles ‘Loaded’ which went top 20 in the UK, and ‘Movin’ On Up’, which found the band success in America. Released in October 1991, the album went on to win the first ever Mercury Music Prize in 1992 and in 1996 it was named the Best Album of the 90s by Select magazine.
The show is the first confirmed UK date for the band this year, who are currently working on new material for a follow-up to 2008’s ‘Beautiful Future‘. Speaking about their new work to nme.com in January, bassist Mani said: “This year is a writing year and it’s going well. We’re trundling along. We’ve got some half ideas left over from the last album, so we’ll bring them up and give them a kick around, we’re into it.”
Tickets for the London show will go on sale on February 26th.
