Luna is the second album by the Scottish band The Aliens. It was released on Monday 29 September 2008, preceded by a new single, 'Magic Man', on Monday 22 September. Both releases came out on the band’s own record label, Pet Rock Records.[8] "Boats" is reworked version of a song by the same name on the Lone Pigeon 2004 album Schoozzzmmii. Besides being more hi-fi, the Alien's arrangement is also more filled out (3 minutes longer) and slightly more up tempo.
