Jamie T returns with ‘Tinfoil Boy’

After five years of silence, the London troubadour is getting prolific.

Jamie T has unveiled a new single, ‘Tinfoil Boy’.

Streaming below, the track follows last year’s ‘Magnolia Melancholia’ and his ‘Carry On The Grudge’ album, the latter of which came after a five year silence.

Debuted on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show as a Hottest Record, ‘Tinfoil Boy’ is a “claustrophobic”, Rage Against The Machine-inspired track with a “rocky feel,” according to Jamie T. “It was recorded slightly differently,” he says. “We went to Detroit and did a session out there. That’s where the track came from and it was recorded in a different place under slightly different rules which helped it sound a bit different. Hopefully that comes across. I wanted to put something out that was kind of claustrophobic.”

No word on whether this is taken from a new full-length, but the new single is available now.
