Confirm Tim Burgess announces new EP ‘Ascent Of The Ascended’

Tim Burgess announces new EP ‘Ascent Of The Ascended’

And he’s sharing lead track ‘Yours. To Be’ now.

Fresh off of the release of his new album ‘I Love The New Sky’, Tim Burgess has announced that he has a brand new EP, ‘Ascent Of The Ascended’, out on 27th November via Bella Union.

Sharing lead track ‘Yours. To Be’ alongside the new, Tim says of the song, “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 .”

“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,” he continues. “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 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.”
