Probably best known in the States for his 1997 hit “A Girl Like You” (from the Empire Records movie soundtrack), Collins got his start in Scotland in the 70s with the influential Orange Juice. Collins plays in Austin during South By Southwest in support of his upcoming album, Losing Sleep. The album–which hits stores on 3.22.11–features support from members of Aztec Camera, The Cribs, Franz Ferdinand, Magic Numbers, The Drums, and Johnny Marr.
