Primal Scream have reissued their 1986 hit "Velocity Girl" on vinyl with new B-side "Broken", as well as remastering it for digital platforms.

Announcing the vinyl release on socials, Primal Scream revealed the 7" will arrive with new B-side "Broken".

"Broken" is the first new track from Primal Scream since 2016's Chaosmosis.

Speaking about the remastered music video for "Velocity Girl", which features actress and model Edie Sedgwick, Bobby Gillespie said, "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."

"Velocity Girl" is out now on vinyl and digital. "Broken" is yet to be released on streaming services. Primal Scream play Latitude festival later this month. Find out more.
