Aimee Mann confirms a new album

The long awaited new album from Aimee Mann, Charmer, will be released in the UK on September 17 by Proper Records. Influenced by what Mann calls the “superpop” of the 70s and 80s, the album is her first release since 2008’s celebrated @#%&*! Smilers.

Of Charmer, her eighth studio album, Mann comments, “I’m fascinated by charming people and the whole idea of charm. It's hard to remember sometimes that there is usually an agenda behind the act of being charming, and that is what I'm most interested in. Is someone’s charm being utilized just to try and entertain people, make them feel special and interesting, or is there a more sinister purpose behind it? Sometimes I think ‘charm’ can just be another word for ‘manipulation.’” The album also includes a duet with James Mercer of The Shins on 'Living a Lie.' Mann will support the new album with tour dates this autumn.
