Jamie Lidell announces New Single, Album, and Tour

Warp Records unique solo artists Jamie Lidell has announced details of the long awaited follow up to his debut album, 'Muddlin Gear' with a new three track single 'When I come Back Around' on the 16 May followed by the Album, 'Multiply' in June. The album also includes a separate DVD by visual collaborator Pablo Fiasco containing footage of their films and live performances from the last year.

Described as a modern classic by the lucky few that have listened to it the new album fuses twisted electronic R+B giving the power championed by vocalists such as Marvin Gaye, Otis Reading and AL Green a distinctly contemporary edge. Jamie's unique solo performances have made him a icon of advanced electronic music, his soulful voice mixed with astonishing live musical experiments delivering a mind boggling mixture of future music with traditional harmony.

In promotion of the new album Jamie has announced a series of tour dates in the UK as well as an endless summer on the festival circuit. (Matt Cheetham)
