Jamie Lidell’s latest release is a self-titled recording which is the fifth full-length release from the critically acclaimed artist, whose previous records have been praised by the New York Times as “exceedingly precise and lovely,” including 2008’s Jim, which was named Best Pop/Rock Album by the Independent Music Awards.
Known for bringing together disparate musical influences, Jamie Lidell sites Mtume, Cameo, New Jack Swing, Bobby Brown and George Clinton as inspirations for the new release. “I referenced a lot of the analogue synth tones of the records I really love,” he says, “the question isn’t electronic music or not, it’s what are you trying to say with the electronics you choose.” Lidell recently moved from New York to Nashville and set up an expansive recording studio in his new home. “The whole house has become a recording studio,” Lidell says, “the entire album was recorded and mixed at home. I’m proud of that.”
Born and raised in England, Jamie Lidell debuted in 1997 with the EP Freekin the Fame. His most recent release is 2010’s Compass, which the New York Times called “compelling” and Spin praised as “genuinely soulful.” In addition to his solo albums, Lidell has released music with producer Cristian Vogel under the name Super Collider. He has also collaborated with artists including Feist, Simian Mobile Disco, Beck, Matthew Herbert, Chris Taylor, Big Data, A-Trak, James Gadson and Gonzalez.
