New Charlatans album out 4/17!

The new record, Simpatico, is out 4/17.

They've got a video for the new single, Blackened Blue Eyes, on their website.

Sounds good.

This will probably be the best record of the year.
In the 16 years i've been listening to this band
they just keep getting better with each new
release. Amazing.

I don't think they have a US label.

from pitchforkmedia.com:

The Charlatans UK Prepare Ninth Album



James Gregory reports:
Perpetual Brit-rock underdogs the Charlatans (with or without the "UK" suffix, depending on your proximity to the International Date Line) will return this spring with their ninth album, Simpatico.. Yes, the period is part of the title. Maybe that's so that it doesn't get confused with Velocity Girl's ¬°Simpatico!?

Arriving in UK stores on April 17 and May 2 in the States, the disc marks their first release under a new deal with Sanctuary Records. It's also the first Charlatans LP to come out in America since 2001's Wonderland

Unlike the back-to-basics approach of their previous LP, 2004's Up at the Lake (which is still unreleased in the U.S.), Simpatico. showcases the Charlatans trying on different moods and styles. As a recent label press release kindly explained:

"No longer using his falsetto, Tim continues to find the sweet spot where Dylan-inspired diatribes meet unstoppably contagious melodies-- both obsess him. These days he happens to also be obsessed with reggae. First heard on Burgess' excellent and overlooked solo record from last year (on which he covered Bob Marley's "Who the Cap Fits"), Simpatico. boasts a number of great blue-eyed reggae tunes, all of them wonderfully upbeat and hummable."

Hey, why the fuck not? It worked for UB40.

Fans wanting a preview of the disc before blowing their weed money can get a taste of the new record when the debut single (and leadoff track) "Blackened Blue Eyes" hits UK stores as a two-part CD single on April 3.



so this means we're gonna get it!
YES!

Yes.

The reggae thing doesn't work. And the songwriting doesn't help.

"Blackened Blue Eyes" is good, very good infact. Best track on the record.

So is "When The Lights Go Out In London." It has and 80's English rock thing going on.

No "wow" moments though.

Total let down.
