Simple Minds Sings From Its 'Soul'
Simple Minds Sings From Its 'Soul'

Veteran Scottish rock act Simple Minds has put the finishing touches on its next album, "Graffiti Soul," due May 25 from Universal.

"Stylistically, this is a truly vibrant rock'n'roll album that's bursting at the seams with quite possibly the most ballsy pop songs we have written in years," says frontman Jim Kerr of the follow-up to 2005's "Black & White 050505."

The new album follows a 30th anniversary tour last year that included a set at Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday party in London and complete performances of its classic album "New Gold Dream."

A tour in support of "Graffiti Soul" is in the works.
