Frontman of Manchester indie-gods The Charlatans to play MareelDF Concerts & Events in association with Shetland Arts presents Tim Burgess live at Mareel on Friday 27 September.
Tim is touring his new album 'Oh No I Love You', which will be released on September 2, around the UK with his five-piece band, including The Charlatans guitarist Mark Collins.
Tim BurgessThe 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', Tim 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 read.y"
Recorded in Nashville with producer Mark Nevers, it 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.
