Watch the video for new single 'The Ring' plus US, UK and European Tour Dates Announced. Compass out 17th/18th May.

25/03/2010
The Ring is the first single from the upcoming new Lidell long player Compass and it has a serious stomp to its swagger.

Jamie and fellow musicians including Chilly Gonzales and Dan Rossen (Grizzly Bear) lift their hammers in this Anvil blues, whose lyrics describe a bedraggled beachcomber as he is seen desperately searching for his lost gold.

The video, shot by Lindsey Rome in double vision through the barrel of a dusty camera's sights finds Jamie returning to the songs birthplace, the beaches of Western Australia, to shout it out from the sands.

The single will be available on 7inch and digitally on May 4th US or May 10th Elsewhere, and features a new, unreleased B-side. In addition Jamie is touring with an all-new band from the end of April, landing in London week of album release and playing right through into the Summer.
