Tim Burgess has announced his next solo album I Love The New Sky will be released in the spring.

I Love The New Sky is out on May 22nd and was written ‘in Norfolk, in the middle of the countryside, with the nearest shop eight miles away’, according to The Charlatans frontman.

“There are no distractions, and I guess that way things happen,” he continues. “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 will play select dates in the US next month, while UK and European tours are arranged around the album’s release.
