We have been sitting on this for a while now, waiting for a time closer to the LP's release date. But we can wait no longer.....

A Hero to 1FTP and I'm sure to many others out there, Edwyn Collins is back with a new LP going by the name 'Losing Sleep'. All in all it will be the former Orange Juice frontmans, seventh LP. In 2005 Edwyn managed to successuflly recover from two brain hemorrhages and this will be his first LP since then.
