Bobby Gillespie & Jehnny Beth announce collaborative album 'Utopian Ashes'

Having shown great appreciation for their solo work in the past, Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie and Savages' Jehnny Beth have now announced their plans for a collaborative studio album, arriving in the coming months.

The new full-length 'Utopian Ashes' is being previewed by the new lead single 'Remember We Were Lovers', and is set to be released on the 2nd July via Third Man Records.

Speaking about the new offering, Jehnny Beth said, "In the same way you create characters for a novel, we’ve created characters here. But you put yourself in it, because you’re trying to understand the human situation. The singing has to be authentic. That’s all that matters."

While Bobby Gillespie added, "When you write a song you marry the personal with the fictional and make art. I was thinking about two people living alone, together but apart, existing and suffering in a psychic malaise, who plough on because of responsibilities and commitments. It’s about the impermanence of everything - an existential fact that everyone has to face at some point in their lives."
