It was just a few weeks ago when someone tweeted the observation of how it seemed like maybe Jamie T had left the proverbial building and we'd only ever have his two extremely excellent albums to remember him by. A week after that, another tweet announced that he was actually going to be back with some gigs and a brand new album later this year. And then yesterday… bam, a brand new tune and video was dropped.
To say that I'm extremely excited for this new album would be a bit of an understatement. Panic Prevention and Kings & Queens are still 2 of my favourite albums, and even though this new track sounds very different to any of his previous stuff, it's still pretty ace. And it also makes me even more intrigued to hear what this next album is gonna sound like (although I really hope he hasn't completely kicked the 'cockney rap' stylings that made the first 2 albums so excellent).
But for now, just give a listen to the first taste of new Jamie T music we've had in years (which is also my jam of the week). And then sit on your hands and wait for more.
