Vinyl LP pressing. Charmer is something inspired not by a current hit formula or a token trend. Instead it is informed by the eons of music that he has soaked up during his travels, wandering through the ages. It comes not as a quest for fame, but as a way of expressing emotions, of touching people on a deeper level. It aims to evoke something in those people without dictating what that should be. "Laughing can be very close to crying," says Claptone. "... and crying can be very close to laughing. Songs can be melancholic and beautiful whilst still making you smile." Even more, Charmer is driven by an insatiable musical desire; a passion that has compelled him to collaborate with songwriters Jimi Tenor, Peter, Bjorn and John, Nathan Nicholson (The Boxer Rebellion) and Jay-Jay Johanson amongst others. Together, their spirits add up to a most full, absorbing and engaging album that adds another layer of intrigue to the Claptone story.
