Tim Burgess

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING the huge success of the publication of his autobiography, Telling Stories, earlier this year, Tim Burgess releases his new solo album Oh No I Love You on September 24, 2012 on O Genesis Recordings.

The album’s release is followed by a UK tour, starting in Aberdeen on October 18, taking in The Union Chapel in London on October 24 and finishing in Belfast on 27.

Commenting on the album, Burgess said: “The root of this album goes right back to a Kurt Wagner show in Manchester. It was the quietest yet the most powerful live performance I had ever seen and afterwards I carried Kurt’s guitar to the car for him.

“I took the chance to ask him if he would ever consider writing a song with me. “Sure Tim, you write the music and I’ll write the words”. That one song turned into an album and almost ten year’s after we first talked about it, the album is ready and it’s called Oh No I Love You.

The album features 10 new songs and will be released as a download bundle and also on standard CD, limited edition CD (featuring additional bonus tracks), and super limited edition coloured vinyl.

The tour will feature Tim with his new four piece band including The Charlatans guitarist Mark Collins.

The dates are as follows (all October 2012):

18 – Aberdeen, Lemon Tree
19 – Glasgow, Oran Mor
20 – Manchester, Deaf Institute
22 – Birmingham, Glee Club
23 – Bristol, Thekla
24 – London, Union Chapel
26 – Dublin, Workman’s Club
27 – Belfast, Stiff Kitten

Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 29 at 9am.
