It will have been five years since Jamie T last put out an album, following the success of Kings & Queens in 2009.

The video for Zombie follows single Don’t You Find – released in July – and shows Jamie T and band turn into the undead while playing a near-empty gig in a pub.

The latest single and album will be available to buy on 22 and 29 September respectively.

Jamie T’s comeback will be supplemented with an arena tour including a homecoming gig at London’s Alexandra Palace on 14 November.

The singer-songwriter, from south London, premiered both of his new tracks on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show.

In July, he told Lowe about Don’t You Find: “I like the melancholy of it – it's the reason I put it out first”.

Pre-sale tickets for the tour went up today at 9am, though the exclusive batch has sold out at a number of venues. Another load will go up tomorrow, including O2 priority tickets.
