‘From lists to experiences and stories, there are no rules. A good song is a good song whoever writes it and however the writing happens.’

Tim Burgess is a musical maverick and legend. Over the past three decades, he has cultivated a lyrical style that is equal parts searing, elusive and raw.

Brimming with nods to an eclectic array of influences, from French chanson to East Coast rap, his words provide vivid snapshots of modern life, its highs and lows, and the things we do to get by. For the first time Tim’s collected lyrics are accompanied by his revealing commentary, featuring backstage anecdotes, advice on how to conjure up the music muse, poignant reflections – and insight into a very idiosyncratic songwriting process. One Two Another chronicles the evolution of Tim’s songwriting and reveals the method behind the madness.

‘Tim Burgess is a crusader and vinyl’s epic voyager. He knows why pop’s art, a culture and a cure. Learn and listen.

He knows good things’ Johnny Marr’You can’t feel blue around Tim. He makes you feel happy, not just about music but about life. Even the most cynical of souls (mine) become infected by his gorgeous energy.

Plus he gives good vinyl’ Sharon Horgan
