The “Sheila” singer’s new record has been described as a “brave and eclectic rock/punk/reggae/rap/pop celebration that only Jamie T could make”.
It comes two years after his 2014 comeback, Carry on the Grudge, which followed 2009’s Kings & Queens, and sees Jamie T play all instruments alongside longterm collaborator James Dring.
“Inspired by claustrophobic London Summers, the album is a proud, punchy summing-up of all Jamie’s unique signatures - Clash-like anthems, youthful reminiscence, high-speed raps, earworm choruses and snarky humour,” the latest statement read.
Trick will be released on 2 September through Virgin EMI, with new single “Tinfoil Boy” out now:
Jamie T will play three nights at London’s Brixton Academy from 8-10 October, with tickets going on sale next Friday 22 July at 9am.
