Just a few days after his 35th birthday, a new album release by Jamie Cullum on Island Records is announced. Release date is 6 October.
Interlude will be a jazz album and will featuring guests Laura Mvula and Gregory Porter. The opening track, Interlude is a catchy, laid-back vocal version of A Night in Tunisia, followed by a speeded up, sassy blues Don't You Know.
Jamie says, “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. All recorded live in one room in single takes. The whole thing was totally organic and free flowing. Great musicians and engineers doing what comes naturally. A real joyous process - sounds like it too I reckon!"
The CD plus DVD combination - with a live set from Jazz a Vienne - is available for pre-order.
