Mogwai are to release a new album, ‘Atomic’ on 1 April.
As ever it will arrive via the band’s own Rock Action label, on CD, double gatefold LP and digital formats.
The album is composed of reworked versions of music recorded for the soundtrack to director Mark Cousin’s documentary ‘Atomic: Living In Dread and Promise’, which first aired on BBC Four last summer.
‘Atomic’ is comprised of archive film detailing the horrors and the benefits of the nuclear times – from the Cold War and Chernobyl to x-rays and MRI scans
Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite says: “The Atomic soundtrack is one of the most intense and fulfilling projects we’ve taken on as a band. Ever since we went to Hiroshima to play and visited the peace park this has been a subject very close to us. The end results, both the film score and the record are pieces I’m extremely proud of.”
The tracklisting reads thusly:
3. Bitterness Centrifuge
6. Weak Force
7. Little Boy
8. Are You A Dancer?
10. Fat Man
