The Charlatans Launch Interactive Tune Map

  • 10 November 2017

The Charlatans have launched a new interactive app to celebrate their career.

The 'One To Another' hitmakers have teamed up with developers Modern English for the unique project 'The Tune Map' - styled after the London underground branding - following the release of new single 'Over Again'.

The initiative will give fans the chance to go back over the band's back catalogue, including specially-curated Spotify playlists and new video footage of the group - made up of Tim Burgess, Mark Collins, Martin Blunt and Tony Roger - talking about some of their earlier tracks.

There will also be live footage - including a rare, previously unseen cut of 'Indian Rope' recorded during a 1990 show at the San Francisco Pacific Amphitheater - and front man Tim is excited to unveil the digital ''museum''.

He said: ''It's the band's archive and stuff we didn't know we had shown in the most brilliant way.

''It's like a trip down a rabbit hole - so much to see. Animators from Japan, The US and the UK have helped out, we went through old video tapes and dug out old fanzines. It's like a museum on your phone.''

The app is now available to download for free, and comes after the indie rockers created a set of app screens for their singles earlier this year.

Modern English - a tech company based in the band's own hometown of Manchester - had just finished a project with Foo Fighters when they were inspired by the creation and approached The Charlatans.

While working with Dave Grohl's US rock band, they created the Spotify Mixtape Generator, which allows fans to curate a Spotify playlist based on the listener's 'vibe' and an era from the Foo's past.
