Premiering on The Line of Best Fit, Tim Burgess has shared a new single “Clutching Insignificance”, the latest preview of forthcoming album and Record Store Day release As I Was Now.
Featuring bass from My Bloody Valentine‘s Debbie Googe, guitars from Josh Heyward (The Horrors), organ from Martin Duffy (Primal Scream), and drums and organ from Steffan Halperin (Klaxons), his album is a dream group collaboration which was recorded 10 years ago.
Talking of the album Googe and Burgess recall:
“It all went very smoothly and very quickly. So once we’d done the couple tracks that I thought I was doing (‘Clutching Insignificance’/’Many Clouds’) you [Burgess] lined up another one. I’d never heard it before or since, no idea what it’s called, but I remember doing a bassline and you were a bit surprised, I don’t think you’d envisioned the bass to be like that. I always wondered what happened to that track. The other two I have the versions that you sent so I have some reference but that one is a mystery to me.”
As I Was Now will be available for RSD this Saturday.
