[album] Tim Burgess – Typical Music

You have to be really self-confident to release a 22-song album that lasts almost an hour and a half. Fortunately, this is about Tim Burgess, who did just that, delighting his many fans.

A cult musician, The Charlatans frontman, writer and one of the most popular users on Twitter has already made quite a few solo releases in the 2000s. However, none of them has yet been such a monster (in a good sense) as Typical Music.

On his new record, Tim decided not to disregard any new musical idea, carefully working through and completing each track. And because he has a true talent for writing near-perfect pop songs, what we end up with here is a truly gigantic record full of hits.

It doesn’t make much sense to parse Typical Music into singles or individual tracks, it’s a real adventure that you can enjoy by going through it completely – from beginning to end. The perfect treat for all existing fans, and also a great way to get to know the amazing musician for the first time.

Check it out below and get the LP here, out now on Bella Union.

Two years ago Tim Burgess released the brilliant I Love The New Sky and later followed it up with an additional EP Ascent Of The Ascended.

Now it is time for the new record. No announcements have been made just yet, but we already have a lovey first single “Here Comes The Weekend”. It is unleashed with a playful and fun music video, directed by Kevin Godley.

Watch it below and get the track here, out now through Bella Union.

[album] Tim Burgess – Ascent Of The Ascended

Following his fantastic fifth solo album I Love The New Sky released back in May, we shouldn’t be surprised that Tim Burgess had some extra tracks to unleash for his fans’ listening pleasure.

The brand new EP Ascent Of The Ascended is out today via Bella Union and it is consists of 6 songs — two brand new numbers and four tracks recorded earlier this year in New York City as a live session for Paste magazine, one of which is a new version of “The Only One I Know” by Burgess’s band The Charlatans and three classics from I Love The New Sky.

The title track from the EP is an euphoric 7-minute psychedelic pop jam and the other new one “Yours. To Be” is a beautiful and touching little song that gets stuck in your head immediately. Despite being so different both of them fit together perfectly well.
