The single, which has never before been included on a Primal Scream album or compilation, will be backed by new track ‘Broken’ recorded earlier this year and will be available exclusively via independent record stores.
‘Velocity Girl’ is also available digitally on all major platforms from today, April 18, with ‘Broken’ to be available digitally from May 24.
Check out a brand new video for ‘Velocity Girl’ now, directed by longtime band associate Douglas Hart and featuring footage of Edie Sedgwick in Ciao! Manhattan.
“I had an Edie Sedgwick type character in mind when I wrote ‘Velocity Girl’. I read Jean Stein’s biography about her and I wanted to meet a girl like that. Hanging out with Warhol, The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan and shooting speed whilst looking absolutely fabulous. Super hip and beautiful. She was the muse. I love her.” – Bobby Gillespie.
