Post-punk rocker Edwyn Collins used to front the Scottish-based group Orange Juice before transitioning to an indie solo artist. He recently announced the release of his seventh solo album, Losing Sleep, which will come out March 8 in the U.S. Losing Sleep is Collins’s first album since he was diagnosed with a serious illness in 2005.
His new album isn’t the only big news Collins has in store, however. Recently he announced the dates for his first U.S. tour since 2003, and his first time performing with a live band since 1997. After two stops in New York, Collins will appear three times at this year’s South by Southwest March 17, 18 and 19 with details yet to be announced.
