Song Stories: Jamie T On How He Wrote ‘Power Over Men’

There are a few real-life inspirations behind Jamie T’s recent single ‘Power Over Men’ – taken from his fourth album ‘Trick‘ – but when we asked him to tell the story behind the song, he didn’t go so far as to give names. He’s pretty clear about what it means, though: it’s about a “femme fatale” figure, and in the accompanying video there’s plenty of action that takes the image even further than Jamie’s lyrics (“She used to make do, but now she makes men fall at her feet, weak, their tongues leak, they try to stop talking cos now they don’t make any sense”).

After a recent bout of illness, Jamie T’s rescheduled some missed tour dates that tickets are still available for in mid-November. Grab ’em now while you can.
