Jamie Cullum Returns with New Album MOMENTUM

Press Release:

Jamie Cullum is pleased to announce the full details of his sixth studio album, 'Momentum', via his new record label Island Records. Momentum features the carrier track “EVERYTHING YOU DIDN’T DO”.

The album, titled 'Momentum' for good reason, is bursting with ideas and inspirations which almost have a life of their own. Indeed, Jamie approached this record in a completely different way to his previous LPs. "The album is about that crossover period from youth into adulthood where you still have one foot in each" explains Jamie. "You start to understand the world in such a different way and see things more as they are - both ugly and beautiful. You're caught between those fresh senses of the wider picture whilst still battling those same old issues within your own head. Take Me Out (Of Myself) through to Everything I Didn't Do to Get A Hold of Yourself. Have I done enough? Have I achieved all that I thought I would? What about everything I didn't do?"

The album was produced in part by Jim Abbiss (Artic Monkeys, Adele) and Dan The Automator (Kasabian, DJ Shadow) and it should come as no surprise that, combined with Jamie's talent for writing a tune, the album is brimful of powerful songs; from the opening declaration of intent 'The Same Things' to the beating heart of the album 'Sad, Sad World', which began life on a train journey into London, ending with 'You're Not The Only One', a song written in response to being a judge on Sky One's reality show 'Must Be The Music' alongside Dizzee Rascal.

With over 10 million record sales under his belt Jamie joins an incredible roster from past and present over at Island Records including Mumford & Sons, Bob Marley, Amy Winehouse, Robbie Williams, Florence and the Machine and Jessie J.

“Jamie Cullum is without doubt one of the most talented musicians and enduring artists this country has produced in years.  At our first meeting it quickly became clear how excited and genuinely delighted Jamie was to be signing to Island Records. He also happens to be one of the most genuine and charming people in the business.” (Darcus Beese – Island Records President)

Since the release of his last album, as well as performing to millions of people around the globe on his critically acclaimed sold out tours, Jamie has been working on a variety of unique projects that have seen him collaborate with artists including Stevie Wonder, Rizzle Kicks, ?uestlove and The Roots, write the Golden Globe nominated song ‘Gran Torino’ for the Clint Eastwood film of the same name and perform at events such as the FIFA Ballon d’Or in Zurich in front of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi and for Robert De Niro at his party at the recent Cannes Film Festival.

“MOMENTUM”, the new album from Jamie Cullum is now available on your favorite record bars nationwide and online via iTunes Philippines under MCA Music Inc. in cooperation with SMART, Live More!
