Tim Burgess Shares “Here Comes The Weekend”
Tim Burgess, has returns with new single, “Here Comes The Weekend”, the first taste of music from a new album due for release later this year via Bella Union/[PIAS]. The track comes accompanied by a colourful video directed by the legendary Kevin Godley. Listen/ watch HERE.
“The idea was very much about two people who were distanced and wanted to connect but were finding it really difficult because of mobile phone signals and rain and time differences and jet lag,” says Burgess. “And I always knew the album should start with Here Comes The Weekend. It’s a simple song, and it’s a feeling more than anything.”
Commenting on the video Kevin Godley says:
“This idea, about physical separation versus virtual connection, had Tim, Rose and Dan delivering impeccable performances throughout a pretty physical day, spent bending real people + live projections into a film that seems to blur the lines between joy and anxiety. Not that we set out to achieve anything that specific, but the improvisational nature of the shoot allowed it to emerge.Nor did it do any harm having an artist and song this bloody good to apply the idea to. Big thanks to Tim and everyone for the opportunity.”
