‘As I Was Now’ was recorded back in 2008 and is part of this year’s list of exclusive Record Store Day vinyl. It joins hundreds of releases to be sold in a bid to support and celebrate the UK’s best independent record stores.
Following the list announcement, The Charlatans frontman took to Twitter to reveal the album’s impressive backing band. Burgess linked to a seemingly hypothetical Tweet from last year, in which he asked fans who would be in their dream supergroup – while sharing his own.
At the time, the singer listed himself and Ladyhawke on vocals, The Horrors’ Josh Heyward on guitar, Primal Scream’s Martin Duffy on keys, My Bloody Valentine’s Debbie Googe on Bass and Klaxons’ Steffan Halperin on drums.
Yesterday, Burgess confirmed that these musicians were in fact those who contributed to the upcoming LP a decade ago.

“This is the band that played on As I Was Now,” he posted, followed by the hashtag #mysupergroup.
Burgess has already shared the first single from the record, in the form of ‘Inspired Again’. Check out the full tracklist below.
‘Just One Kiss (One Last Kiss)’
‘Another Version Of The Truth’
‘The Savages (A Table For Their Heads)’
‘Take Me Places’
‘As I Was Now’ is out April 21.
Burgess has released something for Record Store Day every year since 2012.
Last year, he was an ambassador for Independent Venue Week. Following in the footsteps of past ambassadors, Wolf Alice (2016), Frank Turner (2015) and Radiohead‘s Colin Greenwood (2014), Burgess aimed to highlight the plight of small gig venues and celebrate their importance to the UK music scene
