Jamie Lidell – What A Shame

The heir to the plastic soul throne has returned with his second album on Warp records and from this track, it sounds like the stuff Justin Timberlake would be doing if he was willing to take a risk (I think that’s a compliment).

Lidell’s fanbase has grown in numbers since his development from laptop beat maker to all out soul singer and he now seems to be sitting somewhere in the middle of that spectrum, with his ‘Warp’ stamp steering him away from Jamie Cullum territory. Thankfully.

Listen to ‘What a Shame’ from the self-titled new album.
