Tim Burgess Details 'Ascent Of The Ascended' EP, Shares Lead Track Yours. To Be

Wednesday, 23 September 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Tim Burgess has announced a new EP.

The six-track 'Ascent Of The Ascended' will arrive on November 27 via Bella Union and feature the newly shared breezy indie-pop track Yours. To Be. Check it out below.

It'll also include live versions of three songs off the Charlatans frontman, label owner, and author's recent solo LP, 'I Love The New Sky', as well as a reworked version of the Manchester band's The Only One I Know. Discussing Yours. To Be, he said:

"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.” 

"There was an energy that came from recording the album with such a brilliant band - I didn’t want it to end," Burgess said of the EP. "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."

On the band's live sessions for Paste magazine, he added: "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.”

Burgess will support the follow-up to 2018's 'As I Was Now' with a UK tour in spring 2021. Tickets are on sale now.
