"The new album even has a nod to Glasgow in it, with Glad [Community Choir], a community choir based in the city, making a guest appearance.
Meilyr says he fell in love with the group the moment he heard them and knew he had to have them on the album.
"I loved what I heard and they seemed like a really nice and varied group of people, with a really interesting and vital attitude to music", says Meilyr. "They were doing things as varied as Home Alone and Purcell, which very much chimed with my way of working."

Bill Wells and Aidan Moffat released their second collaboration The Most Important Place in the World on Chemikal Underground in March 2015. With reviews describing it to be, 'the funniest and most imaginitive piece of pop culture you are likely to encounter' (Independent on Sunday), it is no wonder that Glad Community Choir greatly enjoyed singing on the track Street Pastor Colloquy, 3am. Gospel turned upsidedown, it is raw, dark and, in true Moffat fashion, full of comedic value. To download the album click here.
