Leeds Festival 2015 Friday - Jamie T

The Wimbledon man told Radio X's Phil Clifton why he didn't keep his fans waiting another five years.

Jamie T unleashed the official audio to his Tinfoil Boy single yesterday.

Written by Jamie and co-produced by longtime collaborator James Dring, the track is his first new material since 2014's Carry On The Grudge album and 2015's Magnolia Melancholia EP.

Listen to it below:

Speaking to Phil Clifton on Radio X yesterday, the Sheila singer said: "It  was nice to get away and find a new sound.

"I'm really happy with it."

When asked if he felt any pressure to write new material, the South London singer revealed: "It was kinda easier I think. The momentum was there. 

"I was enjoying playing live again and a lot of the songs came out of that touring I did."

He added: "It was an exciting record to write, which is why I think it hasn't (been) so long. It's not five years like last time."

When it comes to tour dates, however, Jamie T fans may have a little bit of a wait.

Despite the wordsmith looking forward to getting back on the road, he revealed "nothing as of yet," had been confirmed.
