CMU #54: Glasvegas

Following the unlikely crossover sensation that was their eponymous debut album, Glasvegas return with a second offering 'EUPHORIC /// HEARTBREAK \\\', scheduled to come out on 4 Apr through Sony/Columbia.

The album was written and demoed over five months in the distinctly un-Glaswegian setting of a Santa Monica beach house, during which time drummer Caroline McKay elected to leave the band to pursue outside interests. Having returned to the UK with new drummer Jonna Lofgren, the band recruited famed producer Flood (PJ Harvey, U2, The Jesus And Mary Chain) for the recording process.

With a free download of towering new track 'The World Is Yours' available for a limited time on their <a href="http://www.glasvegas.net" target="new">website</a>, Glasvegas have also announced a UK tour to take place later this spring. Meanwhile, new single 'Euphoria, Take My Hand' is available for download now, and will be released physically on 28 Mar.

In anticipation of all this, CMU asked guitarist Rab Allan if he'd kindly put together a Powers Of Ten playlist, thereby shedding some light on those artists who have most inspired and influenced him and the band.
