The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess Releases New Solo Album “As I Was Now” On Record Store Day

Tim Burgess will release his new solo album As I Was Now as part of Record Store Day 2018 (April 21st). As I Was Now was recorded recorded in Cheshire between December 28th and December 31st 2008. Listen to “Inspired Again” here.

On November 16th, 2017 Tim Burgess tweeted, asking his followers who they would recruit if they were putting together a band: “Who would you have in your supergroup? Excluding The Charlatans, mine would be: Vocals: Me & Ladyhawke, Guitar: Josh Hayward (The Horrors) Keys: Martin Duffy (Felt/ Primal Scream) Bass: Debbie Googe (My Bloody Valentine) Drums: Steffan Halperin (The Chavs/Klaxons).” The difference was that Tim’s band was not only a real band but they had also recorded As I Was Now.

“It was snowing, Josh had to get back (to London) for New Years Eve,” recalls Burgess. “We were complaining about how boring things were between Christmas and New Year, so we got together to record some songs. It was back then. Not now. Some songs were more complete than others, others appear on this record more finished than others.”
