Co-produced by Jim Spencer, the album was recorded at the band’s studio in Cheshire and features contributions from an array of friends... from Paul Weller and Johnny Marr to crime writer Ian Rankin and writer/actress Sharon Horgan. It follows on from the success of The Charlatans' last album Modern Nature, which drew critical praise across the board, and notched up their eighth Top Ten on the album chart, all capped off with a lifetime achievement award from Q Magazine

    In the wake of the Manchester bombing earlier this week, the Manchester natives acknowledge in themselves the emotional shift around this album release and their scheduled performances throughout Manchester. The Charlatans' Tim Burgess articulates how they consider the purpose changed. "It was previously about celebration, fun, and having a party. Now I think it's more about meeting up with friends, fans, and family, and enjoying time together... Counting our blessings while remembering those who are still going through anguish."

    He goes on to explain, "Manchester is a very special place for The Charlatans and we will be spending this weekend with our brothers and sisters there."
