Charlie Barnes, touring multi-instrumentalist with the hugely successful British act Bastille, follows up his 2018 album ‘Oceanography’, with the 10-track collection ‘Last Night’s Glitter’ – set for release on the 3rd July 2020.
Watch the lyric video for the album’s title track here:
Recorded and mixed in his home studio, it features new stripped-back arrangements of tracks from his aforementioned previous album, as well as 2015's 'More Stately Mansions', complete with woodwind, brass & string flourishes from the likes of Jonny Abraham & Rittipo (Public Service Broadcasting, Bastille) & more. Closing out the album is a brand new piece, and the record’s title track, a piece of music that Charlie describes as “the kind of song where a writer manages to translate exactly where and who they are at a certain time into a handful of verses.”
“This album, which was supposed to be a couple of throwaway bonus tracks, or a swiftly turned around EP, or a handful of live session videos to help point people, and their wallets, in the direction of its predecessor, has taken me far longer to make than it should have done. So long, in fact, that I no longer see it as a standard issue piece of promotional material, but a body of work that I hope will come to hold its own amongst my repertoire.”
