From Jamie on the choice of track – “I’ve loved Cyndi Lauper since I got her greatest hits on tape at the age of ten, and in fact this isn’t the first time I’ve covered one of her tunes. I’ve got all her records, I’ve read her book, she’s a true icon and I hope she digs what I’ve done to her song. It just seemed like it would work so well in that sorta garage-disco sound, just a big fuzzy bass guitar and drums with a slap-back fifties-style echo on the vocals, and I feel like we managed to pull it off!”

More from Jamie, this time on ‘Shuffle’: “Shuffle is just around the corner now and I can hardly wait to unleash it on the public! We’ve put a few tracks out there over the past few months and I think people are starting to get a better idea of the scope and sound of the record, but believe you me, we’ve only scratched the surface!”

JAMIE LENMAN will host a competition winner, fan invited album listening party on Wednesday the 3rd July in London where 80+ super fans will be able to hear ‘Shuffle’ for the first time with Jamie talking about each track before and after they are played. He will also be at the below record shops for some in-stores week of ‘Shuffle’ release:

6th July – Reflex in Newcastle, 12:30pm
6th July – Rough Trade in Nottingham, 7:30pm
9th July – Resident in Brighton, 6:30pm

Following on from his debut solo double album ‘Muscle Memory’ in 2013 and the highly acclaimed ‘Devolver’ album from 2016, ‘Shuffle’ is another huge step forward for ex-Reuben front man JAMIE LENMAN and again will do away with any notion he has settled comfortably into a ‘sound’ or style as a solo artist.

At its very heart, ‘Shuffle’ is a covers (or reinterpretations) album, one where the listener can go on a ‘shuffle’ journey of their own, through all media – music, movies, books, games, cartoons. Every now and then the ‘shuffle’ will throw a curveball and maybe the listener skips it, or maybe they keep listening and it becomes their favourite. Like ‘Devolver’, producer Space (Idles, Black Futures) returns and helps Jamie realise his hugely ambitious artistic vision for ‘Shuffe’, a record LONG in the making.

The album is also not limited to reimagined songs – Jamie has covered television themes, film scores, and the music from his favourite video game. It’s not even limited to music – there is a cover of a chapter from his favourite book and a scene from his favourite short film, in his debut acting performance alongside his favourite actor. “For me, this album has been a dream come true – total creative freedom, a chance to push myself into terrifying new territories. There are so many parts of it that I still can’t believe we actually managed to achieve, from singing in ancient languages to acting with one of my heroes and so much more besides. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
