Singer explains why collaboration didn't make new LP 'Kings & Queens'
The troubadour first told NME.COM that Welch had contributed some backing vocals to his album in our albums of 2009 preview back in January.
However with the finished record ‘Kings & Queens’ out on Monday (September 7), Jamie T has finally confirmed the song featuring the pair – who shared the same A&R man – does not appear on the record.
“That track didn’t make the album unfortunately,” he told BBC News. “I haven’t actually had a listen to it in a while. She did do some backing vocals, but it’s something that’s been taken and the press have run with it. It was a really small part, she just happened to be in the studio.”
He added that the vocal part was so small, many listeners might have missed it anyway.
“It’s a really low-key part and you probably wouldn’t even know she was there,” he explained. “So, it’s not the love duet that some people hoped it would be.”
