Jamie Lidell has revealed details of his forthcoming album.
The follow-up to 2005’s ‘Multiply’ is called ‘Jim’ and is due out in the US on April 29.
Recorded in Berlin, Los Angeles and Paris, the album features 10 tracks that mix up “gospel grooves, passionate soul, ballads, thumping early R&B, synthed-up disco, and ‘hillbilly funk,'” according to a statement.
“I haven’t tried to hide the influences,” Lidell said. “This is the music I love.”
He added: “The most important thing was the vocal, to capture the balance of me delivering the songs with full gusto, and at the same time retaining the grain and the grit.”
The album tracklisting is:
‘Wait For Me’
‘Out Of My System’
‘All I Wanna Do’
‘Little Bit of Feel Good’
‘Figured Me Out’
‘Where D’You Go’
‘Rope Of Sand’
