Prefab Sprout release a new album, Crimson/Red, on October 7.

The band’s first record of new material for over a decade, the album was conceived, written and recorded by Paddy McAloon over the last 18 months – McAloon plays all the instruments on the recording.

Subjects tackled on the album include Bob Dylan on “Mysterious”, songwriting on “The Best Jewel Thief In The World” and, on “The Songs Of Danny Galway”, a 1991 meeting between McAloon and Jimmy Webb.

The group rose to prominence with their mid-’80s albums Swoon, Steve McQueen and From Langley Park To Memphis, but have released no genuinely new material since 2001’s The Gunman And Other Stories.

The tracklisting for Crimson/Red is:

The Best Jewel Thief In The World
The List Of Impossible Things
Adolescence
Grief Built The Taj Mahal
Devil Came A Calling
Billy
The Dreamer
The Songs Of Danny Galway
The Old Magician
Mysterious
