Listen To Jamie Lidell's Chilling New Ballad "Believe In Me"
Jamie Lidell has been a bit of a musical enigma since introducing himself as the soul-strutting Jim all those years ago, taking various forms in compositions, depending on what they demand of him of course. He's brought the neo-vintage soul shine with cuts like "Green Light" and "Little Bit Of Feel Good," dabbled in electric iterations of the funk with "When I Come Back Around" and even unleashed his inner trap lord just a few months back when he dropped his GTA V contribution "Runaway" on your heads and hands.
But today he returns with the very first offering from his post-Warp career, bringing forth the gloom and murk with the somber new loosie "Believe In Me." And it's as dark and stormy a cut as we've heard from the UK soul ambassador. Draped in church bells, slow-claps and Lidell's standardly soaring vocal treatment, the track mounts and mounts until it boils over at it's very conclusion, making for a somber, yet insanely powerful number. We can't say that an album is on the way just yet, but you can expect new sounds in the months to come. Until then, buckle up for the moody and melancholic balladry of Jamie Lidell's "Believe In Me" below.
