Tim Burgess has announced that his fifth solo album I Love The New Sky” will be available from 22nd May via Bella Union Records, celebrating the news with the release of its new lead track Empathy For The DevilHe’s also revealed a whole slew of live shows to take place across the UK and US between March and July.

Solo artist, singer, label boss, DJ and author, Burgess hasn’t let his role as The Charlatans frontman define him. Each of the tracks on the new album are self-penned. On his writing process, Burgess said that most of the creative process took place “in Norfolk, in the middle of the countryside, with the nearest shop eight miles away. There are no distractions, and I guess that way things happen. I wrote everything on acoustic guitar, and the chords were really considered. The guitar lines would lead the melody, and the melody would inform the lyrics – just dreaming away with music.”

Burgess worked with Grumbling Fur’s Daniel O’Sullivan—whose solo albums came out on Burgess’ label, O Genesis—to arrange and produce the new album, as well as help record the bass, drums and piano for all twelve of the new tracks.

I Love The New Sky will be available from 22nd May via Bella Union Records.
