Jamie T is releasing his third and much-anticipated new album "Carry On The Grudge" on 29th September. It's his first album since 2009's "Kings & Queens" and reintroduces one of the most distinctive voices in British music over the past decade.
The album announcement follows the incredible reaction to "Don't You Find", the first piece of music Jamie has released in over four years. It received it's world exclusive first play on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show as Hottest Record In The World. A bold, brave return, it sets the scene perfectly for "Carry On the Grudge".
"Carry On The Grudge" is a big step forward. Musically and lyrically, it's a boiled down, intense listen, with not a word or note wasted. The likes of "Zombie" recall the urgency of Jamie's past records but it's balanced with the likes of "They Told Me It Rained" and "Mary Lee". The old influences of punk, folk and reggae are all still here, but reshaped into something new whilst still defiantly the work of Jamie T.
Four live dates were recently announced on Jamie's website and tickets sold out in minutes. This two-time NME Award winner and Mercury Prize nominee for his debut album "Panic Prevention" has a fanbase whose enthusiasm is undimmed after his time away.
