Jamie Lenman and Employed To Serve’s Justine Jones have teamed up for ’Long Gone’

What a tune.

<strong>Jamie Lenman</strong> and <strong>Employed To Serve’s Justine Jones</strong> have teamed up for <strong>’Long Gone’</strong>

Jamie Lenman has announced a new double a-side single: he’ll release ‘Long Gone’ (feat. Employed To Serve’s Justine Jones) b/w ‘Irrelevant’ (feat. Arcane Roots’ Andrew Groves) on Friday, 8th June with a 7” set to follow on 27th July.

Of ‘Long Gone’, he says: “This track is heavier than anything on ‘Devolver’ but is still got that big chorus and it was made by the same people so it feels of a piece. It’s about the dangers of nostalgia and being careful what you wish for, which is a theme that’s present on the record also. Even though it’s quite aggressive it still sounds quite bouncy and summer-y to me, perfect for belting out at the festivals!

“I met Justine when we had Employed To Serve at Lenmania last year, we did a song together and it was awesome. I thought it’d be great to get her on record and the verses on this track seemed like a perfect fit – she just let it rip with no warm up and blew our faces off! Plus she’s a local girl so she gets all my references. If I drop Woking Peacocks Centre into the convo she knows where I’m at.”

Jamie’s latest solo album ‘Devolver’ was released last October via Big Scary Monsters.
