Pre-order Jamie’s fifth studio album ‘The Years In Between’ – HERE
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Jamie Lawson returns with his brand new single The Answer, OUT NOW via Gingerbread Man Records/ADA. The first track taken from forthcoming studio album The Years In Between (out 29th March), it’s a rhythmic, truthful love song co-written with Ollie Green (Freya Ridings, Gavin James), and offers a perfect taste of what’s to come from Jamie in 2019. The track had its exclusive worldwide play on Ken Bruce’s BBC Radio 2 show this morning. Listen to The Answer here and pre-order the album The Years In Between here.
On the creation of The Answer, Jamie said: “I was on a train from somewhere to London listening to a lot of instrumental music when suddenly the idea for this track came to me. The lyrics started flowing and by the time I reached the studio where Ollie Green was, I’d written most of the song. As it progressed, what I thought might be a tender love song transformed into a fun, indie bop!”
Jamie’s fifth studio album, The Years In Between, will be released 29th March via Gingerbread Man Records/ADA. Written and recorded whilst supporting Ed Sheeran on a mammoth 46-date UK and EU stint (including four sold out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium), the album is Jamie’s most collaborative to date. Alongside Ollie Green, writing partners include Jamie Scott (Jess Glynne, Rudimental, Niall Horan), Natalie Hemby (Kacey Musgraves), Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello) and Matty Benbrook (Paolo Nutini, Lewis Capaldi). The recordings were brought together by GRAMMY Award-winning producer Ruadhri Cushnan (Mumford & Sons, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes) at Dublin’s Camden Recording Studios.
In his armoury, Jamie holds an international hit single, a Number One album, an Ivor Novello Award, 238 million combined digital streams, 28 million YouTube views, and a huge social media following. As the first signing to Ed Sheeran’s Gingerbread Man Records, his single ‘Wasn’t Expecting That’ became a hit around the world, selling over a million copies worldwide.
This year will see Jamie release his fifth studio album, The Years In Between, before playing twenty shows across the UK & EU, stopping off at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on May 2nd. Fans can secure tickets here and pre-order the album here.
2019 looks set to be yet another incredibly exciting year for the singer-songwriter.
