from Brian Jonestown Massacre at his studio in Berlin. Literally in the space of 15 minutes, Mark Collins recalls, he sent back some ideas on keyboard and guitar, and then he Facetimed us to talk us through them.After that encouraging response, they decided to open the gates a little wider. We only wanted people that we actually knew, says Mark, and that we could let into our world without feeling fraudulent about it. Adds Burgess, Its matter of sharing it with people we love.Johnny Marr could easily have appeared on any Charlatans album since 1999, when the band were introduced to him by Jim Spencer, their in-house engineer at Big Mushroom. Marr dropped by for an hour, but ended up staying for five, and contributed to three tracks, including the majestic leading single, Plastic Machinery.Similarly, Stephen Morris, the New Order and ex-Joy Division drummer, is an old friend he briefly helped out on Modern Nature. His role this time extended further, to seven tracks. As well as playing a physical kit, he brought his savvy in programming and other digital technology. From Hey Sunrise and the title track, through to the albums housey phase (Over Again, The Same House, which also features his wife Gillian on keyboards), Morriss parts lend a gleamingly futuristic dimension to The Charlatans endeavours.As the spirit of collaboration prospered, Burgess fast-tracked a long-discussed team-up with Paul Weller, the expansive, Chicago soul-y album finale Spinning Out taking shape between Big Mushroom and Wellers studio in Surrey. Other star turns include congas from ACRs Donald Johnson, and bass from his brother Derrick, on Over Again, and vocals from Sharon Horgan yes, as in TVs Catastrophe on the title track.As The Charlatans made the final push to complete the record in the early weeks of 2017, it was all about streamlining what they had into a sequence of music that flows, a good old-fashioned journey another of The Charlatans key strengths. It starts off bright, Tim summar
