Following rave reviews for his recent solo album, ‘I Love The
New Sky’, Tim Burgess announces a new EP / mini album,
‘Ascent Of The Ascended’, released via Bella Union. The 6-track
EP contains two superb new tracks, ‘Yours. To Be’ and ‘The
Ascent Of The Ascended’, recorded soon after the album was
finished, as well as four tracks recorded in New York City back
in March as a live session for Paste magazine. Three of the
tracks are from ‘I Love The New Sky’ alongside a new version
of The Charlatans’ classic ‘The Only One I Know’.  Of the lead track, ‘Yours. To Be’, Burgess says: “At the tail end
of the glory of the night before – with all the hope and beauty
that the following morning brings. Away from the glare of the
party – like the calm after the storm has left town. It’s a feeling
that’s so pure and uncluttered. It’s around a while, then real life
starts to creep back in. It’s all about making the most of
moments as they are happening .”  Burgess goes on to say: “There was an energy that came from
recording the album with such a brilliant band – I didn’t want it
to end, I wanted to record a bit of a magnum opus, which is
where ‘Ascent Of The Ascended’ came in. I’d always wanted to
work with Charles Hayward from This Heat, so we have him a
ring and he said yeah. With ‘Yours. To Be’ being almost like an
instant feeling you get in a moment, very rarely in your life –
the two songs are so different but they somehow complement
each other. So an EP was the perfect idea.  “We had so many plans for playing live this year – from South
by Southwest to Glastonbury and everything in between. But
that wasn’t to be. We played four shows in New York before
lockdown happened – so our session for Paste Magazine was
such a rare event, we’ve included the songs to complete the
EP.”  180g Neon Orange vinyl, 350gsm sleeve on uncoated/reverse board.
