Jamie Lidell Back On The Map
Wednesday, 5 March 2008
The album's unique mix of subtly futuristic production, timeless songs and the man's silken voice didn't take long to work its way from being a best-kept-secret to a genuine revelation, leading to TV appearances on Later... With Jools Holland (UK) and The Late, Late Show (USA), worldwide media adoration, hit singles in Europe and touring and recording with Beck.
Jamie now responds to the fevered anticipation by finally dropping a collection of new songs worthy of sending him stratospheric in early 2008!
Recorded in Los Angeles, Paris and Berlin with Justin Stanley (Beck, The Vines), Renaud Letang (Feist), Multiply co-conspirators Gonzales and Mocky and an international team of musicians, the new material shows a musician and performer brimming with confidence and ideas, embracing a vision that is at once reverential to the finest soul artists of the past 50 years and still entirely his own.
