SCOTTISH duo The Proclaimers made a comeback earlier this year by re-recording their hit 500 Miles for Comic Relief.
The track – which featured Peter Kay and Little Britain’s Matt Lucas – was a huge hit and led to renewed interest in Leith-born twins Craig and Charlie Reid.
They were all over TV shows and even performed at festivals including T In The Park and V Festival.
Now, they have released a new album, Life With You, which features 13 new tracks.
The album also includes a cover of the Wreckless Eric song “Whole Wide World”, which became a firm favourite of audiences during their live shows this year.
The album has been released by Universal Music imprint W14 Music, a label run by John Williams, The Proclaimers’ first producer and A&R Man.
He gave them their first record contract after seeing them in a performance on The Tube back in 1987.
He said: “The Proclaimers are the real deal. People told me 20 years ago that they would only sell in Scotland, but they have become an international act and touched millions with their musicality and originality. Their new songs are amongst the finest of the career and I am thrilled to be associated again with two of the most passionate and soulful artists ever to come out of these isles”.
