In 2015 UK indie-rock stalwarts The Charlatans released their twelfth album MODERN NATURE on BMG Chrysalis and under exclusive licenses through Cooking Vinyl in Australia.
Following up from the release we are excited to announce that THE CHARLATANS – Tim Burgess, Mark Collins, Martin Blunt and Tony Rogers will be touring in Australia in March 2016.
The band went into their studio Big Mushroom in January 2014 and as Tim recalls “We were aching for the summer when we wrote it. It was freezing and we were trying to write songs that made us happy. “
The result is Modern Nature. Featuring eleven new tracks, the album was produced by The Charlatans and Jim Spencer and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Portishead). The album features a cacophony of contributors from their three temporary drummers – Pete Salisbury of The Verve, Stephen Morris of New Order and Gabriel Gurnsey of DFA’s avant-disco group Factory Floor, to Kate Bushs’ backing singers Melanie Marshall and Sandra Marvin, strings by Sean O’ Hagan and brass courtesy of Dexys’ Big Jim Paterson. Q have already described the album as “one the finest of their career.”
The tracklisting for the album is as follows; Talking In Tones/So Oh/Come Home Baby/Keep Enough/Tall Grass/Emilie/Let The Good Times Be Never Ending/Need You To Know/Lean In/Trouble Understanding/Lot To Say
The live shows in March will be The Charlatans’ first Australian tour since 2010.
