Edwyn Collins is set to release his new album 'Understated' through AED Records on March 25th.

Edwyn Collins doesn't like to sit still. A vastly experienced producer, songwriter and now label owner the Scottish artist seems to throw himself into each new project with near boundless energy. Completing work on a fresh batch of new material, Edwyn Collins recently signed off his latest studio album.
