He is currently touring his new album Oh No I Love You, which will be released on 2nd September, around the UK with his five-piece band including Charlatans guitarist Mark Collins.

Burgess, who recently published his autobiography Telling Stories, worked with Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner on the record.

He says: “The root of this album goes right back to a Kurt Wagner show in Manchester … I carried Kurt’s guitar to the car for him. I took the chance to ask him if he would ever consider writing a song with me. He said ‘Sure Tim, you write the music and I’ll write the words’. That one song turned into an album and almost 10 years after we first talked about it, the album is ready.”

Recorded in Nashville with producer Mark Nevers, Oh No I Love You features members of Lambchop, Clem Snide, and My Morning Jacket.

Chris Scruggs, grandson of the legendary banjo player Earl Scruggs, who starred at the Thomas Fraser Festival in Burra a few years ago, also plays on the album.

The concert has been promoted by DF Concerts & Events in association with Shetland Arts.
