Britpop and Madchester survivors The Charlatans have shared “C’mon C’mon,” a previously unreleased song originally recorded for the band’s 2001 album Wonderland. It is featured on A Head Full of Ideas, a new career-spanning vinyl box set that’s due out on October 15 via Republic of Music and includes their best songs, as well as remixes and live tracks. Listen below.

“It’s about taking chances while they’re there and not missing out,” says frontman Tim Burgess in a press statement. “Which is odd because we didn’t take the chance to release it at the time—I’m guessing we missed out. It’s stood the test of time—I really like it now.”

Also from A Head Full of Ideas, The Charlatans previously shared a remix of their 1997 song “Tellin’ Stories” by The Go! Team.

The band also previously announced a free show in Manchester, England for NHS (National Health Service) workers on November 15 at Gorilla. Ticket applications will be available October 1.

The Charlatans’ last album, Different Days, came out in 2017 via BMG. Burgess has been quite busy since then, releasing solo music, doing his Twitter listening parties, and is releasing a book, The Listening Party, on September 2 via DK.

Check out our interview with Burgess about his Twitter listening parties, along with our COVID-19 Quarantine Artist Check-In interview with him from last year.
