UK soul eccentric Jamie Lidell has a new self-titled album coming out on Warp in February 18, 2013. Warp’s offering a preview of one track, “What a Shame,” on Lidell’s site. It’s a tumultuous, quasi-funk song powered by huge, whomping beats and shot through with some of Lidell’s old-school electronic chaos circa Muddlin' Gear. Jamie sounds like he's in serious emotional distress. I hope he's okay. Check out "What a Shame" after the cut and sign up for a free download of it here.
