Robert Carlyle has praised DMA'S new album.

The Aussie trio released their third studio effort The Glow this Friday (10 July), and the Scottish actor - who's known for playing Begbie in the Trainspotting films - took to Twitter to give it the thumbs up.

Retweeting the band, the star wrote: "Love it! Brilliant album from a truly lovely bunch of guys".

Carlyle isn't the only famous endorsement of the Life Is A Game of Changing outfit have had in the past with both Liam Gallagher and Courteeners' Liam Fray giving them their seal of approval.

Addressing their followers about the release, the band - who are comprised of Johnny Took, Tommy O'Dell and Matt Mason - wrote: "Thank you to our amazing fans for the support over the last few years. We’re very proud of this record and we hope it connects with you as much as it does with us. This album is now yours and we hope it gives you some light."
