Watch & Listen: Open Up!

| Filed under: Listen To This

If you take a little bit of Prince, a part of Ottis Redding and some Terence Trent d'Arby, you'd have Jamie Lidell.

A musician's musician, he has worked in the past with Peaches and Feist, amongst others.

And, now, he's currently the opening act for Sir Elton John in Europe!

Jamie's Another Day is an INSTANT hit. You will love the song - and the video - upon first listen.

His songs are soulful and retro - yet far catchier than Sam Sparro, whose attempting to do a similar thing.

  19. 19

    ugh, give me a fucking break



  20. 20

    I saw Jamie at Austin City Limits. He was great live! And yeah perez you're a little late in "discovering" him. This song was on the old navy soundtrack for 3 months



  21. 21

    ummm there is no way this guy sounds like prince. Prince is pure genius. and this guy sounds like a wanna be stevie wonder. the kind that sings on cruise ships for drunk 90 year olds



  22. 22

    I don't care what the others say, thanks for letting me know about this guy. I just listened to some of his songs and he is pretty good. Thanks P.



  23. 23

    Perez, you are usually way ahead of the game, I'll admit. But I've been listening to Jamie Lidell for quite a while now.

    When are you going to put up a post about Kate Nash. Now she's the sh*t!!!

    P.S. I'm an American, FYI.



  24. 24

    lik hellooooe Perez.. duhhhh that Jamie Lidell is amazing!!!!

    Check out multiply and question mark also.. I love him!



  25. 25

    Jesus toe tapping christ Perez why did you post this? That song is so awful and the video doesn't do a fricken thing for the artist. Look at his head! I bet he's wearing a wig.



  26. 26

    I got his CD when it first came out. He is a genius!!!! Check out the song multiply



  27. 27

    how is this bad?!?!
    his voice is great, the tune is great…
    i dont get how anyone can hate!
    i love it. thanks!



  28. 28

    :o Perez its Otis Redding not Ottis Redding…



  29. 29

    Wow people are really hating on this that badly?? Well I guess to each his own but I thought it was fabulous! We have a blah rainy afternoon here in Cincy and this song just made me HAPPY :) Thanks Perez! I usually have a love/hate relationship with your song choices but this one was fun!



  30. 30

    Reminds me more of Jamiroquai.



  31. 31

    old news. His cd came out earlier this year.

    Re: Parramore
    tThe word is spelled awful run a spell check dude!



  33. 33

    I love this man.



  34. 34

    I am so over Perez and will not be coming back as often anymore… Perez you are a wannabe . Your music taste is awful most of the time!!!! Jamie Lidell has kicked ass forever and your just "reporting" on him, your such a band wagon fair weather type …. get real and start opening up your mind.

    35

    Dude…You are SOOOOOO behind the times. He's been around for years. I've seen him live a bunch of times and he rocks!



  36. 36

    Jamie Lidell's voice is beautifully uplifting. LOVE HIM!



  37. 37

    This is excellent. *thumbs up*



  38. 38

    He's a very bad live performer! Watch out and never book this guy, because the crowd won't dig it. I've seen him twice



  39. 39

    once again Perez is late to party. this is the guys second album and if you're such a big fan you would have been at his recent show here in LA at the Fonda



  40. 40

    why are you ruining this for all the musicians then perez!? leave him be! we want him for our own. get out! you weren't invited. fuck you.



  41. 41

    this is a cheerful, catchy song..i like it. but i don't think the sam sparro comparison is fair. his voice is different and his stuff is more electronic soul. jamie has a really cool vocal style, and i think sam sparro's voice is also amazing…have u heard his track, SALLY? it's sick. really…check it.



  42. 42

    Re: Tessaloniki

    HE IS AN AWESOME PERFORMER LIVE! WHY THE FUCK DO YOU THINK HE IS GOING ON TOUR WITH ELTON JOHN?????

    He's great. I've seen him live, and he did not disappoint. He gives an energetic show.



  43. 43

    great stuff. i'm a radio music director and i think i'll be adding this one soon.



  44. 44

    how funny, I thougth the chinese looking dancer in the beginning was the same girl that was on MTV's Can't get a date…
    LOL
    and the song is great, known it for a while ;)



  45. 45

    Well peeps please remember us Uk folks! I consider myself pretty "up" on new and old music so am embarressed to admit I've never heard of the dude.
    I'm going to put this right straight away! I LOVED it! Soulful, catchy, great vocals. Don't agree with the comparisons P But who cares!
    I could so imagine Stevie W singing this……….
    I'm a fan already.
    Off to do some research………. Any album names peeps?



  46. 46

    Haters go away, Its a nasty cold day here in England and this tune has totally cheered me up!
    I thought thats what music was supposed to be all about……………



  47. 47

    Yeeey! Just been to Myspace and guess what? Dudes English!! After my 3rd listen I love it even more! Made we wanna get out my hairbrush and start singing/boogie-ing! Love this guy.
    Who says white buys got no soul!!!!
    PS Perez I'm thinking more Adam Levine (Maroon 5) Than Prince though.
