Edwyn Collins Sets North American Release Date for Losing Sleep

Edwyn Collins Sets North American Release Date for <i>Losing Sleep</i>
Currently, Edwyn Collins's Losing Sleep is only available via the UK-based Heavenly Recordings. Soon, however, North American fans won't have to pay hefty import fees in order to buy the record, as it has finally received a North American release date.

On March 22, Heavenly Recordings/Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records will release Losing Sleep on this side of the Atlantic. It's the first solo offering from the former the Orange Juice singer since he issued Home Again back in 2007. The 12-track offering features guest appearances from Johnny Marr, members of Franz Ferdinand, the Drums and the Cribs, among others.

The disc was recorded at Collins's own West Heath Studios in London with production help from Sebastian Lewsley. Get more info on the album here.

Collins recently dropped a video for "Do It Again,"which features Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos and Nick McCarthy. And while you can watch that below, the album cut "In Your Eyes" stands as one of our favourite tracks of 2010, so you can also stream that one a little further down.
