Jamie Lidell Jamie Lidell on 2LP
Sonic innovator Jamie Lidell is back with his highly-anticipated fifth full-length album, to be released on Warp Records. The self-titled record represents a distillation of 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.
Known for bringing together disparate musical influences, Jamie Lidell cites Mtume, Cameo, New Jack Swing, Bobby Brown and George Clinton as inspirations for the new release saying “I referenced a lot of the analogue synth tones of the records I really love.”
The self-produced album was committed to tape and mixed at Lidell’s newly built studio in his new home in Nashville, TN, 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.
"Merging electronic beats and sounds with those of classic soul, Lidell has created a new future-retro R&B that simultaneously evokes and revitalizes the sound of a bygone era." - The Believer
