TIM BURGESS – ” Typical Music “

Posted: June 11, 2022 in MUSIC

Has there been a busier musician over the last two years? A more prolific artist? More creative? More heroic? We are delighted to welcome Tim Burgess into the Dinked fold with his superb and eclectic new double album, “Typical Music” which will be out on September 23rd via Bella Union. Burgess also shared a video for the album’s title track.

Burgess discusses his new album in a press release: “OK, we all know about double albums, right? Historically, they’ve been thought of as indulgent. But I came to the conclusion that what I was doing was the opposite of that. I wanted to give people everything that I’d done. Every idea was treated as if it was the best thing and had to be treated with extreme care. I wanted to give everything of myself. That was it.”

He adds: “I fell in love with the world again. During COVID, I read a pile of books, got better on guitar. I had new perspective. I wanted to learn how to be Tim Burgess who makes solo records. People have a vision of me as the singer in The Charlatans. That’s not going to change. Then there’s me as the Twitter guy. But I just fell in love with the world again and wanted the world to take me with them.”

“Typical Music” was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire, Wales, and features musical contributions from Daniel O’Sullivan and Thighpaulsandra.

In April, Burgess shared the album track “Here Comes the Weekend,”  Last September, Burgess released the book “The Listening Party”, written about his Twitter listening parties.
