TUNE The Charlatans - Talking In Tones
THE CHARLATANS will be releasing a limited edition 7" single, 'Talking In Tones', via The Quietus Phonographic Company on 13th October. The single is the first track from the band's as-yet-untitled 12th album. 'Talking In Tones' is strange, haunting pop incarnate inspired by William Oneyabor with a massive, typically Charlatans chorus that comes with excellent organ work from Mr Tony Rogers.
The single will be available on limited edition 7” and features a remix from TQPC label mates Grumbling Fur. The 'Fur's Daniel O'Sullivan and Alexander Tucker also designed a side each of the 7" artwork.
The track, and the forthcoming album comes after a brutally difficult year for The Charlatans following the death from brain cancer of their old friend and drummer Jon Brookes last year. Rogers says that they were determined to carry on to honour Brookes' memory - "Jon was adamant that there was going to be another Charlatans record, and you have to put that into your own thoughts." Details of the album and a full UK tour in 2015 will be announced in October.
The band will be playing a one off, special single launch gig at Highbury Garage on Monday, October 20th featuring Grumbling Fur in support.
