To get everyone prepped for their North American dates (What?!?!? No Toronto date?), The Charlatans shared a video of their classic track Sproston Green shot by Luke Thompson at their sold-out Summer In The City show from Castlefield Bowl in Manchester, England on July 4, 2015. Watch it below via YouTube.
The band released their twelfth studio album, ‘Modern Nature,’ in January Their singles, So Oh, Come Home Baby, Let The Good Times were well received at UK radio and all A listed at 6 Music. Following their sold out UK tour in March, the band were booked to appear on Later… .With Jools Holland in April. The Charlatans are also nominated for best album and Tim Burgess for Indie Hero at The AIM Awards that will be held in October. Watch Talking In Tones via YouTube below, which is lifted from the ‘Modern Nature’.
‘Modern Nature’ was produced by The Charlatans and Jim Spencer and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Portishead). The album features a cacophony of contributors from their three temporary drummers – Pete Salisbury of The Verve, Stephen Morris of New Order and Gabriel Gurnsey of DFA’s avant-disco group Factory Floor, to Kate Bush’s backing singers Melanie Marshall and Sandra Marvin, strings by Sean O Hagan and brass courtesy of Dexys Big Jim Paterson.
