Jamie Lidell ends a three-year hiatus this October with his new LP Building a Beginning, and after dropping the first single “Walk Right Back” in July, the British soul singer has shared the lyric video for the album’s breezy title track.
“Oh, I can deliver/ Without moving to surrender,” Lidell croons on the track amid a funky bass and shimmering guitar. “And I can make up my mind/ To carry on, to carry on/ Building a beginning.”
The record features an all-star cast of studio musicians including drummer Daru Jones (Jack White), bassist Pino Palladino (D’Angelo, Elton John, the Who) and multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone (Wilco). Justin Stanley (Beck, Prince) and Ben Ash produced Building a Beginning, and Lidell co-wrote some new album lyrics with his wife, Lindsey Rome.
The 14-track Building a Beginning is available to preorder now ahead of its October 14th release date; those who order receive an instant download of “Walk Right Back” and “Building a Beginning.” This September, Lidell embarks on a brief three-date U.S. trek in support of the new LP, his first since 2013’s Jamie Lidell, before heading off on a more extensive tour through Europe.
