Earlier this year, Tim Burgess released his new solo album ‘As I Was Now’ for Record Store Day. Now, he’s shared the video for album stand-out track Nik V, which was directed by Chris Walker and Darren Groucutt and shot in East London. You can watch Nik V via YouTube below.

‘As I Was Now’ was recorded in Cheshire between December 28th and December 31st 2008. Order ‘As I Was Now’ here.

“Nik V is a song from ten years ago but it never had a name,” recalls Burgess. “Then I met Nik V and I knew that the song was about her. The video was filmed in East London where we used to spend a lot of time.”

On November 16th, 2017, Tim Burgess tweeted, asking his followers who they would recruit if they were putting together a band: “Who would you have in your supergroup? Excluding The Charlatans, mine would be: Vocals: Me & Ladyhawke, Guitar: Josh Hayward (The Horrors) Keys: Martin Duffy (Felt/ Primal Scream) Bass: Debbie Googe (My Bloody Valentine) Drums: Steffan Halperin (The Chavs/Klaxons).” The difference was that Tim’s band was not only a real band but they had also recorded’As I Was Now’.

“It was snowing, Josh had to get back (to London) for New Years Eve,” recalls Burgess. “We were complaining about how boring things were between Christmas and New Year, so we got together to record some songs. It was back then. Not now. Some songs were more complete than others, others appear on this record more finished than others.”
