Legendary Scottish crew Primal Scream are about to release their ninth studio album, Beautiful Future. It includes tracks produced by Peter, Björn & John’s Björn Yttling and bigwig Paul Epworth (Bloc Party, Babyshambles, Kate Nash, the Futureheads, etc.) and collaborations with Lovefoxx of CSS, Josh Homme, and Linda Thompson. You can stream the Scream’s swarming, enjoyably retro single, “Can’t Go Back,” at the band’s MySpace. If you’re anxious to load new PS onto your iPod, though, you can download another new track, “Urban Guerrilla,” simply by passing over your email address at this special site. If you do, or if you just stopped to read the above headline, you’ll notice it’s Bobby & Co. doing a pretty faithful take on Hawkwind’s song of the same name, though the band doesn’t mention that anywhere, as far as I can tell. It’s also unclear if the cover will be on the new record. If you trust Wikipedia, the answer is no, but check out this fan video for the track, please.
Beautiful Future is out 7/21 via B-unique.
