Tim Burgess has shared a new track, 'Here Comes The Weekend', alongside an accompanying video.

The song, out now, is the first taste of a new, as-yet untitled album by Burgess, which Bella Union will release later this year. Speaking about the track in a statement, Burgess said: "The idea was very much about two people who were distanced and wanted to connect, but were finding it really difficult because of mobile phone signals and rain and time differences and jet lag. And I always knew the album should start with 'Here Comes The Weekend'. It's a simple song, and it's a feeling more than anything." Watch the video for the track above.

Commenting on the video, director Kevin Godley said: "This idea, about physical separation versus virtual connection, had Tim, Rose and Dan delivering impeccable performances throughout a pretty physical day, spent bending real people and live projections into a film that seems to blur the lines between joy and anxiety. Not that we set out to achieve anything that specific, but the improvisational nature of the shoot allowed it to emerge."

'Here Comes The Weekend' is out now on Bella Union.
