‘More Light’, Primal Scream’s first studio release since bass player Mani returned to the Stone Roses in October 2011, was recorded in London and Los Angeles and was later mixed by Rich Costey.
Previously described by frontman Bobby Gillespie as ‘modern rock n roll’, its sleeve has been designed by the former Turner Prize nominee Jim Labie. “It’s a rock’n’roll record, but modern rock’n’roll,” Gillespie said.
“Pretty psychedelic rock, it’s kind of guitar-driven but we use guitars in an orchestral way, not in the normal way people make rock records. I think we do it in a more interesting way. We weave the guitars in with electronics and other acoustic instruments to make the core sound.”
