Description

Following rave reviews for his recent solo album, ‘I Love The New Sky’, Tim Burgess announces a new EP / mini album, ‘Ascent Of The Ascended’, released via Bella Union. The 6-track EP contains two superb new tracks, ‘Yours. To Be’ and ‘The Ascent Of The Ascended’, recorded soon after the album was finished, as well as four tracks recorded in New York City back in March as a live session for Paste magazine. Three of the tracks are from ‘I Love The New Sky’ alongside a new version of The Charlatans’ classic ‘The Only One I Know’.

+ 180g Neon Orange vinyl, 350gsm sleeve on uncoated / reverse board. Digital download included.

Of the lead track, ‘Yours. To Be’, Burgess says: “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 .”

Burgess goes on to say: “There was an energy that came from recording the album with such a brilliant band - I didn’t want it to end, 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.

We had so many plans for playing live this year - from South by Southwest to Glastonbury, Sea Change 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.”

Drift Recommends


Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
