The Wimbledon bard's latest track, which was co-produced by Olly Burden (Hounds), sees the artist make an anthemic ode to past nights out.

The song comes as the artist - whose real name is Jamie Treays - prepares to play a historic, career-defining headline show at Finsbury Park this Friday 1st July.

Speaking of the date, which sees him joined by special guests IDLES, plus BRITs-nominated Kojey Radical, Biig Piig, Hak Baker and Willie J Healey, the Sheila star told NME: "I’m excited! We played outside in the dark once at Benicassim years ago, but I’m looking forward to playing in the dark outside. Then the f***kin’ money you pay for the lights actually works! I’m just excited about it. It’s certainly something that won’t happen again. It’s gonna be a celebration."

He added: “Stuff is slowly gearing up a bit. I want to do it in a way I want to do it and I want to be me about it. I wanna really enjoy it.”

Last year saw Jamie T release his The Theory of Whatever album, which included the singles St George Wharf Tower and The Old Style Raiders, and reached the top of the UK charts.

Speaking about scoring his first ever UK No.1 album, he told Radio X's Johnny Vaughan: "It's wonderful, mate. It's a wonderful thing for my family and my mum and my dad and just to know it.

"It's a wonderful thing at this age. I'm 36 now. I'm fat and old in music so to have it at this point is a wonderful thing."
