Isobel Campbell is set to release new solo album 'There Is No Other' on January 31st.
The Scottish artist was a key member of Belle & Sebastian across their first three albums, before departing to explore other projects.
Maintaining a wonderful partnership with Mark Lanegan, she then seemed to move back into the shadows.
Absent for far too long, Isobel Campbell is back, with new material, a full album, and a flurry of live shows on the horizon.
'There Is No Other' lands on January 31st, with Isobel confirming plans for a full UK tour.
New song 'Ant Life' is online now, and it leans on the songwriter's indie pop roots, with a neat rhythm offset by a looping acoustic guitar pattern and that whispered vocal.
It's certainly engrossing, a remarkably fresh-sounding song that essentially picks up exactly where Isobel Campbell left off.
Tune in now.
