Primal Scream have teased their upcoming 10th album, More Light, for months now, rattling off the LP's star-studded guest list, pontificating about its "orchestral" and "electronic" sound, unveiling a U.K. release date (May 6), and filming videos for two singles: "2013" and "It's Alright, It's OK."

Now the Glaswegian psych-rockers have finally confirmed a U.S. drop date — June 18, thanks to the band's own First International label (and Ignition Records) — as well as an expanded deluxe edition. As previously reported, the follow-up to 2008's Beautiful Future was produced by Dave Holmes and features appearances from Robert Plant (who supplied vocals on "Elimination Blues"), My Bloody Valentine mastermind Kevin Shields (responsible for guitar work on "2013"), the Pop Group's Mark Stewart (he helps out on the chorus for "Culturecide"), and more.

"I wanted to convey coming out of a dark time and into a good one," frontman Bobby Gillespie said in a statement. "We always knew it wasn’t going to be a straight ahead, balls to the wall, high energy rock'n'roll, two guitars, bass and drum record. It's sophisticated, layered, cinematic and orchestral; obviously working with Holmes we were hoping to make a record more in keeping with that vision."

The expanded version of More Light boasts six bonus tracks in addition to the standard edition's 13; pre-orders of the fatter edit are currently available through iTunes.

1. "2013"
