King Creosote - aka Fife-based Kenny Anderson - says it's about exploring "the tension and harmony between tradition and technology" and the feeling of "being caught between heaven and earth".

"I wanted to push myself songwriting-wise, so I went in with hardly anything and had to wing it,” Creosote adds. “I wanted to try and flip the clock all the way back to sound like a younger me – or a less cynical me. In the past, I've been fixated on twisting and wrenching every line, but here I've let that go a bit, and I hope that lets you concentrate more on the music; on what’s going on around it. I always feel I’m reaching for something, but I never get there, I wanted to get out of the usual places."
