Jamie is really excited to share the full details of Interlude, the jazz album featuring Laura Mvula and Gregory Porter, released on October 6th 2014 through Island Records.
The new album is a collection of twelve tracks, cribbed (mostly) from the earliest days of jazz, recorded simply in one room, with incredible musicians, like it used to be. Interlude was produced by Ben Lamdin and recorded live in the studio with twenty musicians, in just three days total.
About the new record, Jamie said: "I just thought Interlude was a perfect title for the album 'cause this is genuinely my first proper jazz record. I can pretend that I've made albums like this before, but I haven't...Names like Alice and John Coltrane, Nina and Billie and Sarah - they're all touchstones for 'Interlude'."
Interlude is now available to pre-order on Jamie's store HERE and will be available from other retailers on Monday, September 1st. Pre-order now and get a download of 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood', featuring Gregory Porter, and a limited edition signed picture with the Deluxe album. **
The deluxe edition includes a DVD of Jamie's full performance at Jazz à Vienne and an exclusive photo booklet containing tour and studio pictures taken by Jamie himself and Leica photographer Michael Agel.
