Tim Burgess released the EP “Atyper Music”, which includes remixes of tracks from his latest double album “Typical Music”.
The remix EP from The Charlatans frontman enlisted the support of English DJ and musician Andy Votel and Filipino singer and songwriter Eyedress. Votel remixed two tracks (the main single “Flamingoes” and “A Bloody Nose”), and E Eyedress beat the opening track “Sure Enough” in a new way.
“Atypical music is exactly what Andy Votel has been specializing in for the last couple of decades,” Burgess said. “I have always admired his absolute obsession to attach more ears to genres so niche that they are difficult to describe; European horror film, DIY techno and the like.”
The original album “Typical Music” was written when Burgess was not on tour, on the recommendation of Simon from Bella Union.
“I haven’t been able to write anything for about six months, even though I tried,” Burgess said earlier in an interview with NME. “I wrote ‘Time That We Call Time’ and after that it just started flying out of me. I didn’t write anything for six months, and then I wrote 22 songs in six months.”
After launching during the lockdown, Burgess continues to hold his successful #TimsTwitterListeningParties parties, in which he invites artists to tweet track by track to talk about new and classic albums.
This led to the Salford-based star releasing two #TimTwitterListeningParty books, giving all proceeds to various live music charities. Recently, the party celebrated the 15th anniversary of the classic debut of Courteeners “St. Judas.”
Meanwhile, Burgess recently spoke out about the controversial Male Artist of the Year category at BRITs 2023, saying it was “a step forward, three steps back” for the awards ceremony.
He is also currently working on a book about the best closing songs of the albums.
