‘Plastic Machinery’ is the first single taken from The Charlatans’ forthcoming album Different Days. ‘Plastic Machinery’ features Johnny Marr and Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre) on guitar.
Different Days is The Charlatans’ thirteenth studio album, and was co-produced with Jim Spencer at the band’s studio in Cheshire. Different Days features contributions from a number of friends, including Paul Weller, crime writer Ian Rankin, and writer/actress Sharon Horgan.
Different Days follows on from the success of The Charlatans’ last album Modern Nature, which drew critical praise and gave them their eighth top 10 on the UK album chart, all capped off with a Lifetime Achievement award from Q Magazine. The Charlatans had a whirlwind 2015, completing two sold-out UK tours, popping up as the unannounced opening act at Glastonbury, and headlining Isle Of Wight festival. The Charlatans completed a sold-out Australian tour in March 2016.
