The upbeat ‘frantic jazz-polka’ track,‘Largs’ (as described in Uncut magazine), will be released as the next single from King Creosote’s From Scotland With Love, on 2nd March 2015.

King Creosote will be touring the UK and Ireland throughout January and February, with sold out shows at The Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow on Thursday 22nd January as part of Celtic Connections, in Gateshead on January 25th and at London’s Union Chapel on 2nd and 3rd February 2015.

All dates will be standard King Creosote shows apart from Celtic Connections, where Kenny will be performing the music from ‘From Scotland With Love’ live to a screening of the film, this time augmented by a twelve-piece band for what promises to be a very special night.

From Scotland With Love, which featured in The Sunday Times, Loud & Quiet and MOJO’s year-end lists and which critics described as ‘a lovingly crafted thing’ (Independent on Sunday) and ‘consistently superb’ (Loud & Quiet – 9/10), was created in collaboration with director Virginia Heath and Producer Grant Keir as an audio-accompaniment to a poetic documentary film of the same name. Featuring archive footage from the National Library of Scotland Scottish Screen Archive, but no narration or interview, the film works around themes of love and loss, war, resistance, emigration, work and play, and is driven as much by the music as it is the images. For the first time King Creosote found himself being able to write from other people’s perspectives. The result is From Scotland With Love, one of King Creosote’s most widescreen cinematic and finest pieces of work to date. From Scotland With Love is available now through Dom Mart, and iTunes, with an extended version available HERE.
