Never ones to rest on their laurels, The Charlatans are back with a brand new EP, “Totally Eclipsing”, and you can watch the rather excellent video to the title track now.

To be released on 8th June, “Totally Eclipsing” will be available on limited edition 12” green vinyl and the lead track will be backed by ‘Standing Alone’, ‘Indefinitely In Your Debt’ and ‘Hopelessly Hoping’. It’ll also be available to download and will also be included as a 2CD special edition with the band’s latest album, Different Days, which saw contributions from an array of special guests including Paul Weller, Johnny Marr and Sharon Horgan.

Those of you who don’t care about bands getting paid for their efforts will doubtless be able to stream it for free with some platform with questionable attitudes towards royalties.

But the track! ‘Totally Eclipsing’ is one of those classic summer anthems that The Charlatans do so well, and one that wouldn’t sound out of place on their Tellin’ Stories or 1995 eponymous albums. So that’s a thumbs up from these parts.

The video’s a lot of fun, too. Created by animator Chris Walker, the video captures the band in the studio and the removal of several frames per second makes the whole thing feel like stop motion animation.
