The Charlatans front man will release his second solo LP on September 24
Tim Burgess has announced details of his new album ‘Oh No I Love You’, which will be released on September 24.
The Charlatans front-man, who recently published his autobiography Telling Stories, worked with Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner on the record.
Speaking of the making of ‘Oh No I Love You’, Burgess said: “The root of this album goes right back to a Kurt Wagner show in Manchester…I carried Kurt’s guitar to the car for him. I took the chance to ask him if he would ever consider writing a song with me. He said, ‘Sure Tim, you write the music and I’ll write the words’. That one song turned into an album and almost ten year’s after we first talked about it, the album is ready”
Recorded in Nashville with producer Mark Nevers, the LP features members of Lambchop, Clem Snide, and My Morning Jacket. Chris Scruggs, grandson of the legendary banjo player Earl Scruggs played on the album, as well as experimentalist R Stevie Moore.
Further contributions came from Factory Floor‘s Gabe Gurnsey and Nik Colk Void.
The album’s release is followed by a UK tour, starting in Aberdeen on October 18 before finishing in Belfast on 27. The tour will feature Burgess with his five-piece band, including The Charlatans guitarist Mark Collins.
