Jamie T launches ‘Drone Strike’, the third track to be taken from his forthcoming fourth album Trick, out on September 2nd. Listen to ‘Drone Strike’ here
Premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show last night, ‘Drone Strike’ is a politically charged, bold track with spitfire verses and a rhythmichook.
Lead single ‘Tinfoil Boy’ glowers in a rush of dark, thundering punk, second track ‘Power Over Men’ is as beguiling as the femme fatale at the song’s core. Watch the video here
Recorded in London and Detroit, Michigan with long-time co-producer James Dring, Trick is as bold a record as you’d expect from one of British music’s most distinctive voices. Founded on claustrophobic London summers and influences as diverse as The Clash and RZA, it’s an album that shifts with each track; from chaotic, searing punk one minute to a heart-swelling ballad the next. Trick possesses each of Jamie’s classic hallmarks – his keenly-observed character studies, sharp wit, youthful vigour and effortless knack for crafting anthems.
Album launch show at the New Slang, Kingston, September 8th
Jamie will embark on an eighteen date tour of the UK this October, including three nights at London’s Brixton Academy. Dates as below:
