Tim Burgess has released a new song, Here Comes The Weekend.

The zestful track offers a free and easy vibe, and marks The Charlatans frontman's first new music of 2022. It serves as the first preview of an album due out later this year via Bella Union, though there's no further details.

Following his 2020 EP 'The Ascent Of The Ascended', the song arrives with a vibrant video directed by Kevin Godley. Burgess said:

"The idea was very much about two people who were distanced and wanted to connect but were finding it really difficult because of mobile phone signals and rain and time differences and jet lag. And I always knew the album should start with Here Comes The Weekend. It's a simple song, and it’s a feeling more than anything."

Godley added: "This idea, about physical separation versus virtual connection, had Tim, Rose and Dan delivering impeccable performances throughout a pretty physical day, spent bending real people and live projections into a film that seems to blur the lines between joy and anxiety. Not that we set out to achieve anything that specific, but the improvisational nature of the shoot allowed it to emerge. Nor did it do any harm having an artist and song this bloody good to apply the idea to. Big thanks to Tim and everyone for the opportunity."

Burgess will play UK shows alongside a number of festival sets during the spring, summer, and into autumn, including Liverpool's Sound City, and Bluedot festival
