Edwyn Collins Announces US Tour Dates

On the heels of announcing the US release date of his new album, Losing Sleep, indie music icon Edwyn Collins has revealed his long-awaited return to Stateside shores for some live dates. Shortly after the album hits stores (March 8th; Heavenly Recordings/Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records), he’ll be stopping by New York and SXSW.  Edwyn’s last American shows were acoustic shows in 2003, and he hasn’t performed any with a full live band since 1997.

2010 was a phenomenal year for Edwyn.  The former frontman of Scottish post-punkers Orange Juice released his seventh solo album in the UK to massive acclaim, and it ended up being one of the year’s best reviewed albums by the British press.  The record features tracks co-written with Johnny Marr, Roddy Frame, Alex Kapranos & Nick McCarthy of Franz Ferdinand, Romeo Stodart of The Magic Numbers, Ryan Jarman of The Cribs, and The Drums - and is the first album Edwyn’s written and recorded since his serious illness in 2005.
