Now it has been confirmed that upcoming record ‘Trick’ will be released on September 2 via Virgin EMI. A press release states that the album was recorded in London and Detroit, describing it as “the kind of brave and eclectic rock/punk/reggae/rap/pop celebration that only Jamie T could make”.

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.”
