Mercury-nominated singer Isobel Campbell has told DiS that she's to release another album before the end of the year. Her Mercury shortlisted Ballad Of The Broken Seas was released in January 2006.
Campbell has previously collaborated with both Bill Wells and Mark Lanegan on her solo adventures, so we asked if there'd be further collaborations in the future.
"Collaborating is definitely the future, it’s my favourite thing," said Campbell. "I have quite a few ideas, although I will be releasing a kind of leftfield, pagan, psychedelic acoustic album called Milkwhite Sheets before the year is out.
"The songs are half traditional and half self-penned. Witchy."
Strangely, the idea of Campbell being a witch - a good witch, obviously - doesn't seem so far-fetched. Expect to be under her spell, then, come Christmas time. Unless, of course, you've passed out from over-exposure to Sufjan Stevens. That man, he crazy.
The winner of this year's Nationwide Mercury Prize will be announced later today - check DiS later this afternoon to discover the winner.
