Gwenno has supplied further information about her new album 'Le Kov'.

The album was written entirely in Cornish, a language driven almost to extinction before enjoying a widespread resurgence.

New album 'Le Kov' will be released on March 2nd, and it blends Cornish mythology and folk tradition with a challenging vision for Britain's future.

Gruff Rhys makes a guest appearance, while one song - 'Hi A Skoellyas Liv A Dhagrow' / 'She Shed A Flood Of Tears' - shares its title with an old Aphex Twin track.
