This past March, former Orange Juice frontman Edwyn Collins released his eighth solo album and first in three years, Understated, which had been preceded by first single “Too Bad (That’s Sad),” a fine bit of updated Motown soul. Now, three months later, Collins delivers the a music video for that track.
This week’s new releases include brand-new studio albums from Depeche Mode, Wire, The House of Love, Edwyn Collins, Crime & The City Solution and The Wonder Stuff, plus the U.S. release of The Waterboys’ 2011 record, new compilations from Simple Minds, Midge Ure and the Primitives, and Transvision Vamp reissues.
Since we last checked in with former Orange Juice frontman Edwyn Collins, his follow-up to 2010′s acclaimed Losing Sleep has been bumped from January to late March, but that’s OK, since we can at least get a taste of the upcoming ‘Understated’ LP via the track “Too Bad (That’s Sad),” which debuted at The Quietus.
Former Orange Juice frontman Edwyn Collins will follow up 2010’s acclaimed ‘Losing Sleep’ with his eighth solo album, ‘Understated,’ in January, the singer recently revealed — and he’ll be the subject of an upcoming documentary called “In Your Voice, In Your Heart” that chronicles his recovery from a debilitating 2005 stroke.
