One of the most distinctive voices in British music, Jamie T releases his hugely anticipated fourth album ‘Trick’ on September 2nd on Virgin EMI.

Trick arrives after a gap of less than two years shot through with the kind of vigour and vibrancy that can only come from a man who’s rediscovered his love of writing, recording and performing. Spearheaded by lead single ‘Tinfoil Boy’, the track was Annie Mac’s Hottest Record and has since been added to Radio 1, 6 Music and Radio X.

Recorded in London and Detroit, Michigan, Trick features co-production and all instruments played by Jamie and long-time creative partner James Dring and is the kind of brave and eclectic rock/punk/reggae/rap/pop celebration that only Jamie T could make. Inspired by claustrophobic London Summers, the album is a proud, punchy summing-up of all Jamie’s unique signatures – Clash-like anthems, youthful reminiscence, high-speed raps, earworm choruses and snarky humour.  It follows the triumphant success of 2014’s comeback album Carry On The Grudge.
