Speaking last year, Jamie T told Q 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.”
