Jamie T has cited Oasis and Arctic Monkeys as some of the influences on his latest Trick album.
Talking to Radio X's John Kennedy about his Joan Of Arc track, he said: "I think i was kind of trying to make it sound like Oasis - that was certainly a thing in my mind, and there’s certainly a whiff of Arctic Monkeys in there.”
The Tinfoil Boy singer, also cited Wu-Tang Clan and Slaves as huge influences on the record, the latter who he credits for teaching him how to "write angry songs".
The Sheila star might have vowed not to make us wait so long for new material, but when asked when he'd be thinking of starting work on his fifth album, he revealed: “Honestly i don’t know.
"Im trying to get a bit of balance in my life. I don’t wanna release an album too quickly. But i wanna keep working, so it won’t be too long."
