On Record Store Day Tim Burgess of The Charlatans released I Was Now, a 10-year-old unreleased album featuring Burgess on vocals, along with an all-star lineup that includes Ladyhawke, Josh Hayward (The Horrors), Martin Duffy (Felt/ Primal Scream), Debbie Googe (My Bloody Valentine), and Steffan Halperin (The Chavs/Klaxons). Now he has shared a video for the album’s “Nik V.” Chris Walker and Darren Groucutt directed the video, which was shot in East London. Watch it below.

Burgess had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘Nik V’ is a song from ten years ago but it never had a name. Then I met Nik V and I knew that the song was about her. The video was filmed in East London where we used to spend a lot of time.”

Previously Burgess shared the album’s first single, “Inspired Again,” and a video for “Clutching Insignificance.”

The album was recorded December 28th and December 31st 2008. As Burgess explained in a previous press release: “It was snowing, Josh had to get back [to London] for New Year’s Eve. We were complaining about how boring things were between Christmas and New Year, so we got together to record some songs. It was back then. Not now. Some songs were more complete than others, others appear on this record more finished than others.”
