Jamie T has shared his new Hippodrome single this week.
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.
"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."
