'You Cross My Path' available on digital download now

The Charlatans have made their new album ‘You Cross My Path’ available as a free digital download on Xfm.co.uk website.

‘You Cross My Path’ – the follow up to 2006’s ‘Simpatico’ is online now, despite the fact the hard copy of the release is not due for release until May 19.

Speaking to Xfm frontman Tim Burgess said: “We always knew this album was going to be given away for free, even before we started writing so we wanted to make it the best album we’ve ever made. This isn’t a case of left over tracks and b-sides, we wanted to give our fans a quality record.”
