JAMES : New Single, Album and Tour News


JAMES have released the second single to be taken from their new album YUMMY. OUR WORLD is available now across all DSPs with the album to follow on 12 April via Virgin Music, and available to pre-order HERE

Our World holds onto the hope that the human family might eventually unite to “share not spoil” the planet, with Tim singing “Our world isn’t your world, you just stole the world,” and “fake democracies come cheap, profit today from our children’s tomorrow, get rich quick in Eldorado.” Having been singing about environmental issues for many years, it’s not only the Earth itself that Tim worries for.

Speaking about Our World, Tim says: “This song goes out to those who believe that singers shouldn’t write political lyrics – when they conflict with their own. It’s a quick recap of how we are destroying ourselves and nature. How we seem to have forgotten that we are part of the magnificent living ecosystem of nature, and the inevitability of how she is responding to the imbalances we are creating. It’s also got whistling in it, and a nifty sing along. PS It’s the only political song on the album.”

Yummy is the band’s 18th studio album and was produced by Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Jarvis Cocker, Jon Hopkins, Imogen Heap, Regina Spektor) and mixed by Cenzo Townsend (Courteeners, The Specials, Everything Everything). The album artwork has been directed and designed by Studio Fury whose previous work includes the campaign for the latest Rolling Stones album, Hackney Diamonds.

I am a photographer/musician/engineer living in Scotland. My passion is music and motocross and I share my work on facebook/punk4RT and facebook/madmaxmedia. I do like a bit of throw back to the heydays of the 60’s/70’s/80’s when it comes to taking shots of bands. I grew up on the music papers (NME/Sounds/Melody Maker) and drew influence from Pennie Smith/Jill Furmanovsky/Anton Corbijn/Bob Gruen/Adrian Boot/Charles Peterson.
