Fourth record 'Trick' is out on Friday (September 2)

Jamie T has unveiled the latest track from his upcoming new album.

‘Drone Strike’ will feature on Jamie T’s upcoming fourth record ‘Trick’, which will be released on Friday (September 2) via Virgin EMI. The track was premiered last night (August 30) on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show.

The song quotes Ricky Martin’s ‘Livin’ La Vida Loca’ before launching into the chorus: “drones, drones, drones, drones, drones, drones”.
