Jamie Lidell‘s third full-length album, Compass, is set to drop May 18, 2010 from Warp Records. Recorded in Los Angeles, New York, and Canada, and with help from Beck, Feist, Gonzales, Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear, and Pat Sansone of Wilco, Compass promises album to be Lidell’s most eclectic album yet.
“I wrote every song in a month,” Jamie says, “It’s been an emotional couple of years, so I tapped into what I wanted to say and started writing. There was a lot to draw on.”
When Lidell hits the road later in the year, he ll be bringing a band again, but stripping it back; keeping it lean.
