The Charlatans – New single/video

The Charlatans return with their 11th studio album in September and it’s reportedly a return to their original sound for the band. Who We Touch was produced by Youth (Paul McCartney, Primal Scream and The Verve) and was recorded at Britannia Row in London.

Album opener ‘Love is Ending’ is the lead single and the video was directed by The Jesus & Mary Chain’s Douglas Hart, who wanted something very simple yet visually striking to compliment the energy of the track. The ballet dancer/choreographer Aisling Cook was selected due to her influences, style and understanding of Michael Clarke’s work, who is famous for his unique and pioneering style of contemporary ballet with a ‘punk’ edge whilst maintaining the fluidity and grace of classical ballet.
