Graham Coxon to collaborate with Example in new album

NME Magazine writes:

Graham Coxon has teamed up with rapper Example on his new album. 

The guitarist features on four tracks on the rapper's forthcoming third album 'The Evolution Of Man' - scroll down to listen to first single 'Say Nothing', which will be released on September 16. 
Example met Coxon at a gig and asked him to feature on the record, which is due on November 18. "I met him at a War Child gig at Shepherd’s Bush Empire," he says. "Then I saw him at The Brits, and told my manager we needed to get him on the album. So I pitched my idea, then went to his house and played him the album. On some songs he just picked up his guitar and started freestyling. It was fucking amazing."

As well as 'Say Nothing', Coxon features on three more tracks – ' Crying Out For Help', ' Snakeskin', and the Zane Lowe-produced 'Blood From A Stone'. 

The rapper has also announced an arena tour for early 2013, which will kick off at Bournemouth's BIC on February 11, finishing at Manchester's MEN on March 1. 

Example will play: 

Bournemouth BIC (February 11)
Nottingham Capital FM Arena (12)
Liverpool Echo Arena (13)
Sheffield Motorpoint Arena (15)
Newcastle Metro Radio Arena (16)
Glasgow SECC (17)
Aberdeen AECC (18)
London Earls Court (23)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (25)
Brighton Centre (26)
Birmingham LG Arena (28)
Manchester Arena (March 1)
