Tim Burgess has today (September 23) released his new, 22-track double album ‘Typical Music’ – an album he said he was “trying to create a wow factor” with.The no-holds-barred record is the follow-up to The Charlatans frontman’s fifth album, ‘I Love The New Sky’, which was released in 2020.“People are hearing tracks like ‘The Centre Of Me (Is A Symphony Of You)’, or ‘After This’ or ‘Magic Rising’ and going ‘wow’,” Burgess told NME. “They’re really excited by them.

Because that’s what I wanted. What we were trying to create was a wow factor with this exciting music, cartoon music, just everything in the mix.”Recorded at Rockfield studios with regular collaborators Daniel O’Sullivan and Thighpaulsandra, ‘Typical Music’ is the result of an intense six-month writing period during lockdown. “I started writing because there was no touring really,” Burgess explained. “Simon from Bella Union suggested that I won’t be touring for a while, so ‘why don’t you just write another record?’ and I thought, ‘OK’.“I didn’t manage to write anything for about six months, even though I was trying.

I just thought, ‘I don’t know what’s happening, maybe it’s because I’ve not had any new experiences or anything like that’. And then I wrote ‘Time That We Call Time’, and after that, it just started flying out of me.

There was just no stopping it, it was like I was possessed or something, it was weird. I didn’t write anything for six months and then wrote 22 songs in six months.”The songs, Burgess claimed, seemed to arrange themselves, taking whichever stylistic twists they needed, which made for a vastly varied collection taking in space-age lounge-pop, psych-rock, Morricone stampedes and surf-punk, to name just a few of its catalogue of genre.
