Jamie Lidell's new self-titled album is out now, with a world tour commencing in London on March 8th.

2X Gatefold Vinyl, Digipack CD & download via
Bleep / 7Digital / iTunes / Amazon

The self-titled record represents a distillation of Jamie Lidell’s sonic foundations, with the collaborations of 2010’s Compass replaced with an approach that is pure and wholly Lidell - eleven tracks further proving his ability to upend expectations of the ways man and machine can make music together. The self-produced album was committed to tape and mixed at Lidell’s newly built studio in his new home in Nashville, the latest stop on a restless journey that has seen him move from his birthplace in the heart of England, through the musical hotbeds of Berlin and New York.

Some words on 'Jamie Lidell'..

'Up-and-coming stars like Miguel and Frank Ocean have given listeners a new appetite for progressive R&B. Lidell helped draw the blueprint for a new way forward" - Details Magazine

'A whirling dervish of impeccable songwriting - music is rarely this fun to listen to.' 9/10 - Clash

'Jamie Lidell is essentially the Warp Records D’Angelo — a master-craftsmen of genre hybrids packing potent lyrical punches of love' - Stereogum

'whoppingly exuberant and sonically complex' - Guardian

'Never less than brilliant fun' - **** Evening Standard

'Jamie sounds as soulful as ever here, attacking every vocal run like an even more freaked-out Cee-Lo … a positively mean makeup of big, booming bass and squelchy synths that glisten and gleam underneath Lidell's high-octane whine' - Pitchfork (Best New Track, What A Shame)

'The wizard of soul is back … and the future is looking mighty bright' - Prefix
