Tim Burgess will release new album 'I Love The New Sky' on May 22nd.
The Charlatans frontman has developed a plethora of extra-curricular activities, including well-received books and his own label, O Genesis.
Moving to Norfolk with his family, Tim began sketching out new songs, ones that he felt lived in a universe of their own.
Signing to Bella Union, 'I Love The New Sky' is the result, a record informed by its rural birth.
He comments: "There are no distractions, and I guess that way things happen. I wrote everything on acoustic guitar, and the chords were really considered. The guitar lines would lead the melody, and the melody would inform the lyrics – just dreaming away with music."
New song 'Empathy For The Devil' is online now, alongside a batch of headline solo shows.
