Watch Jamie T’s raunchy new video for ‘Power Over Men’

Track premiered earlier this week on BBC Radio 1

Jamie T has posted the video for his new song ‘Power Over Men’.

The track is the second to be lifted from new album ‘Trick’, which is out on September 2 via Virgin EMI, and the clip is directed by Tom Beard, who also helmed the recent clip for the LP’s first single ‘Tinfoil Boy’. You can watch the video below.

The track was premiered earlier this week on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. He also dedicated the song to The Maccabees following their break-up announcement, saying: “Thank you for all the music over the years”.

The singer-songwriter released his third LP ‘Carry On The Grudge’ in 2014 after a five year absence from music, and followed it with the ‘Magnolia Melancholia’ EP last year.

Jamie T’s forthcoming effort was recorded in London and Detroit, and is described as “the kind of brave and eclectic rock/punk/reggae/rap/pop celebration that only Jamie T could make”.

Speaking last year, Jamie T said that he didn’t want his next record to take another five years. “I’m in the studio – I never really left,” he said. “I am working on things. I wouldn’t like to say when it’ll be finished.”

“It’d be nice to get something out a bit quicker than [the last album],” he continued. “So that’s the next thing – recording and hopefully coming out with something sooner rather than later. Beating five years is all I can ask for.”
