Charlie Barnes Announces Single And UK Tour

Charlie Barnes

Talented singer & multi-instrumentalist Charlie Barnes he is pleased to announce a brand new single as well as solo UK tour dates for this October. The single is the title track from the album More Stately Mansions, albeit a reimagined version. Check it out below!

Charlie had this to say about it:
Everybody involved in the album was in fairly unanimous agreement that the main vocal hook on this song is one of the record’s major highlights, so we decided it made sense to at least attempt to rip it apart and put it back together again as something more linear. I almost see this version as more of a remix than an edit. Because some of the sections were a little bit difficult to fit together in a different order, I had to come up with a few new parts and sound effects to help smooth things over. Nothing’s been lost from the original as such, it’s just been reimagined.

The More Stately Mansions single will be released digitally on the 23rd October 2015, and will also feature a B-side titled Easy (Listening) Kid, another reworked version of an album track.

As previously mentioned, Charlie will also play some solo dates in support of the new single. The dates run as follows:

7th Oct – Firebug, Leicester
11th Oct – Old Blue Last, London
14th Oct – Maguire’s Pizza Bar, Liverpool
18th Oct – A Carefully Planned Festival, Manchester
19th Oct – Flying Duck, Glasgow
23rd Oct – Hot Numbers Coffee, Cambridge
