Gruff Rhys has announced a brand new album, 'Pang!'

Gruff Rhys has announced a brand new album.

Titled 'Pang!', the news comes alongside the Welsh language title-track for the record. Recorded in Cardiff, and produced by Muzi in Cardiff and Johannesburg, it features Kliph Scurlock on drums, Gavin Fitzjohn on bass, and engineer Kris Jenkins on flute and percussion.

Speaking about the single, the Super Furry Animals frontman reveals: ""Pang!" is a Welsh language song with an English title. It started life as a folk reel and soon expanded into a "list" song, listing various reasons for pangs; hunger, regret, twitter, pain, bad design etc. Using the English word pang in a Welsh language track may appear weird but I suppose it’s like using the French word "Magazine" in an English song. In that it’s slightly pretentious but completely acceptable."

You can check out the track below. 'Pang!' the album is set for release on 13th September via Rough trade.
