The word prolific fails to do Fife singer-songwriter and born raconteur King Creosote, aka Kenny Anderson, justice.

But having churned having out more than 40 albums under various guises in the last 16 years, his latest might well be his best.

From Scotland With Love was created as an audio-accompaniment to a documentary film of the same name released to coincide with the Commonwealth Games this summer.

And while the film wasn’t shown tonight, its themes of love and loss, war, resistance and emigration shone through – as did his deep affection for his homeland.

The album’s collection of blissful anthems were laden with heavy strumming, Anderson’s trademark random vocal patterns and a cello accompaniment so soothing it should be available on the NHS to cure anxiety.

He’s also a belting story teller, providing the lowdown on each song with lashings of wit and self-deprecating humour.

Amid tracks about “terrifying Glaswegians” visiting the coast, and Friday night boozing and getting lucky – “less so of the latter” – Something To Believe In stood out for its lyrical tenderness and anguished sentiment, while One Floor Down steadily built into a stomp-along complete with a classic “cha cha” ending.

What’s more, tracks debuted from another long-player due in a couple of months suggested Anderson’s rich vein of form shows no sign of waning.

He might have written more songs than many people own, but the quality control is as impressive as ever.
