Jamie Lidell is working on building a new beginning with sweet soul burner (video)
Jamie Lidell’s Multiply album still holds a special place in my heart since it was basically my entry point into soul music and helped shaped my musical taste to where it is today. Since that album, he went full-on soul singer, then went off the deep end for a few albums (which if anyone knows about Jamie Lidell’s long musical career, this is nothing new for him) only to come back around with this slow, sweet, and serene track from his upcoming album by the same name. It short, it’s another blue-eyed soul track and I mean that in the best way possible, filled with Lidell’s commendable vocal range, some ambient strings, and dry but punchy drums. Considering I’ve been away from Lidell’s music for so long (I’ve listened to little tidbits here and there though, so I’m not completely unfamiliar with some of his more recent out put) this does sound like a “return to form” in some ways and is probably the first album of his I thought about coping in awhile.
You can grab Jamie Lidell’s Building A Beginning on pretty much any format when it comes out October 14th!
