How inspiring it is to hear Tim Burgess conjuring up exciting and life-affirming sounds as he, almost inconceivably, enters his fifth decade on public duty. Frontman, singer, label boss, DJ and author, he's been instrumental in so many great records over the years, always bringing enthusiasm, positivity and diversity of influence, which altogether light the way for those who hold him dear.

I Love the New Sky differs from its predecessors in that all 12 tracks were self-penned. "In the past, I've written collaboratively," says a characteristically, but rightfully excited Burgess. "(2012's) Oh No I Love You was written with Lambchop's Kurt Wagner in Nashville, and then Same Language, Different Worlds was a collaboration with Peter Gordon who had worked extensively with Arthur Russell."

The spark for I Love the New Sky came after a year of touring another album, As I Was Now, which he'd made in 2008 but had a belated release 10 years later. "That one was made in three days, just friends getting together," he says - the amigos included Josh Hayward from The Horrors, Primal Scream Keyboard player Martin Duffy, Ladyhawke and My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe.

"I didn't realise the album hadn't actually come out as I had a copy of it on my iPod so I figured that maybe everybody did. So, all those years later I thought it would make an interesting release for Record Store Day. It did really well, so I was approached to tour it for Independent Venue Week and after that a load of festivals asked us to play too. Average Sex were the support band that then became my band so it was a brilliant little tour. After that, I was really energized, and I thought, Right, I'm going to do another album, but really concentrate on making it a solo record, where I write everything on my own and all the songs are the very best I can make them."
