Jungle are based around a core musical duo of lifelong friends known simply as 'J' and 'T', who expand to a thrilling seven piece live, and make mesmeric, kaleidoscopic modern soul that's unmistakably born in the UK but has true global appeal. The album was recorded between the band's own home studio in Shepherds Bush, London and the XL Recordings studio in Ladbroke Grove.
The album track list is:
1. The Heat
3. Busy Earnin'
7. Smoking Pixels
10. Son Of A Gun
11. Lucky I Got What I Want
12. Lemonade Lake
