A true legend, both as a solo performer and as the front-man of Orange Juice, Edwyn Collins has unveiled the video for "Dilemna", the excellent first single to be taken from his upcoming solo album, "Understated".
The album will be released through his own AED label on 25th March 2013. The eleven track album was self-produced with his long time studio partner Seb Lewsley, with ten new songs written by Edwyn and "Love’s Been Good To Me", a Rod McKuen cover.
The impressive roll call of contributing musicians includes: Barrie Cadogan (Little Barrie, Primal Scream), James Walbourne (The Pretenders, Ray Davies, Pernice Brothers, Dead Flamingoes), Carwyn Ellis (Colorama, The Pretenders), Sean read (The Rockingbirds, Dexys), David Ruffy (The Ruts, Dexys) & Paul Cook (The Sex Pistols).
