Jamie T unveils comeback single 'Don't You Find' and confirms new album – listen Jamie T Tickets

The singer-songwriter will embark on a short tour this summer

Jamie T has premiered his first new material in almost five years, the single 'Don't You Find'.

The track – which you can listen to and watch the video for by clicking above – received its first play on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show earlier this evening (July 15) and will be released on July 21. Speaking to Lowe, Jamie T addressed the downbeat aspect of the song, saying: "I like the melancholy of it – it's the reason I put it out first." Jamie T also confimed that a new album is set for release.

He explained that he'd had the idea for 'Don't You Find' "quite a long time ago", saying: "I thought it was kind of different and a nice track. I spent a long time working on songs over the past few years and trying to get power out of slow songs rather than using tempo to get aggression out."

The singer recently announced his live return on a handwritten note posted on his website. He has been quiet since 2009 album 'Kings & Queens', but in the message said he had "decided it might be time to play a few shows" and announced dates in Glasgow, Liverpool and Portsmouth. A London date at Tufnell Park Dome was added later in the week. All dates are now sold out. Speaking to Lowe about the gigs, Jamie T said he was "pretty nervous", adding: "I've kind of forgotten how to play everything". He also revealed he has an entirely new band. "Hopefully it will be rocking", he stated.

The last proper release from Jamie T was the single 'Emily's Heart', which was backed with a cover of Bruce Springsteen's 'Atlantic City'. The song was taken from 2009's 'Kings & Queens'. Jamie T was named Best Solo Artist at the NME Awards in both 2007 and 2010. He released his debut album, 'Panic Prevention', in 2007.
