Premiere: Tim Burgess - Oh Men

Dan Tombs crafted clip...
Tim Burgess

Tim Burgess remains a perpetually engaging, excitable figure.

Whether it's his work with the O Genesis imprint or on the road with The Charlatans, the singer seems to give his all for each project.

Perhaps, though, it's his solo career which remains the most intriguing. Last year's 'Oh No I Love You' long player was a varied return, featuring contributions from Lambchop's Kurt Wagner.

Now a special Record Store Day release finds Tim Burgess working with two special guests. Kurt Wagner helped to write 'Oh Men' while famed American composer Peter Gordon heavily assisted with the arrangement.

Gordon is famed for his work with Arthur Russell and - somewhat appropriately - features a cover version of Russell's 'I Couldn't Say It To Your Face' on the flip.

Available on both seven inch and twelve inch vinyl, you can watch the video for 'Oh Men' first on Clash. Crafted by Dan Tombs with assistance from Marcus Williams, it's an appropriately strange, beguiling and atmospheric clip.

Watch it now.

'Oh Men' will be released on April 19th.
