The Dandy Warhols have unveiled their new album ‘Rockmaker’.

The Courtney Taylor-Taylor-fronted American rock group have announced their follow-up to 2020's 'Tafelmuzik Means More When You're Alone'.

The lead tune, 'Dancing With Myself', features Pixies rocker Frank Black aka Black Francis, and is out now.

Speaking about how the song started life, Courtney, 56, shared: “It started with a riff that either sounded like Misfits or Danzig and then got slowed down.”

On working with the 'Where Is My Mind' hitmaker, 58, he continued: “I was just checking in with him, and he happened to be in Zürich.

“I hooked him and some of his family up with some very interesting museum tours first, then I asked him if he would play on our record.”

The Warhols felt compelled to put out a "heavy guitar record" as they don't feel there are many these days that are up to scratch.

On what to expect from the LP, he added: “Sometimes we have a very focused idea of what we want. It’s generally what we want somebody else to make but since they never do, we have to. It has a very specific sound. There aren’t a lot of heavy guitar records currently coming out that we like, so that was the impetus for Rockmaker.”

'Rockmaker' is released on March 15.
