Saltcoats Record Centre hosted Kyle Falconer last Saturday [July 31] as the Dundee frontman embarked on a whistle stop tour of Scotland’s independent record stores as part of the launch of his new solo album “No Love Songs for Laura”.

The View frontman signed copies of the album before he played an open air gig outside of the Centre to an excited crowd.

The stop was part of a mini record store tour in support of the record, including visits to Inverness, Aberdeen, Stirling, Saltcoats, Edinburgh and Dundee.

The upcoming album “reflects upon both his home life, with his wife Laura and two children, and the journey he has undertaken to arrive where he is today”.

He previously teased the release with lead singles Wait Around and Stress Ball.

The Dundee singer’s sophomore album promises to show him “sounding like he’s never sounded before”.

Falconer will follow up the record with a four-date September tour in Scotland, appearing at Church, Dundee (13); Oran Mor, Glasgow (14); The Caves, Edinburgh (15); and Tunnels, Aberdeen (16).

Tickets for the launch shows can be found on the Assai Records website https://assai.co.uk/collections/kyle-falconer-alan-mcgee. After each set, there will be a Q&A session with his manager, Creation Records founder Alan McGee.
