Tim Burgess has premiered a video for The Mall having last month announced his new album I Love The New Sky for release on May 22nd.
“The mall is like a state of mind – everything and nothing is there,” Burgess says. “It induces a kind of torpor. Even the process of going between floors is assisted by moving staircases. Shop windows are hypnotic but you don’t have to take part in anything. Malls are a great leveller – class and status disappear. They are like a waking dream, an altered state. A kind of limbo. Plus they are handy if you need new shoes or a doughnut.”
Meanwhile, Burgess is in the US this week appearing at one of the events which is still going ahead, New York City’s New Colossus Festival.
