Simple Minds new album on the way

Simple Minds have completed work on their 15 studio album.


Graffiti Soul is the follow-up to 2005's Black & White 050505.


"Graffiti Soul is a bold and energetic collection of songs, and we could not be happier with the result," says lead singer, Jim Kerr. "Stylistically, this is a truly vibrant rock'n'roll album that's bursting at the seams with quite possibly the most ballsy pop songs we have written in years."


The album was written in Rome, Sicily, Antwerp and Glasgow and then recorded at Rockfield Studios where they made their early albums three decades ago.


"It's taken us a while, but over the last couple of years Charlie Burchill and I have put together a great team of individuals to work with, and that, as well as a revitalised and energetic new commitment has triggered an effect that has dramatically overhauled Simple Minds. ‘Graffiti Soul' is testament to that," Jim said.


A world tour, including Australian dates will be announced soon.
