Ahead of his forthcoming Australian tour dates, Warner Music has confirmed the October release of the debut-self-titled album by British singer songwriter Jamie Lawson.
The performer belatedly hit the big time here in Australia via his top five hit ‘Wasn’t Expecting That’, which peaked at No.3 back in May, remains in the top 50 as of last weekend and also achieved a platinum accreditation.
But it’s not just the public who are fans, with chart favourite Ed Sheeran signing him to his own label.
“I first became aware of Jamie Lawson a few years ago, after hearing his track ‘Wasn’t Expecting That’,” Ed said “I very rarely get emotional over a track, but that song stopped me dead. He manages to put across such raw emotion within his work, and I knew immediately that I wanted to work with this guy in some way.
“Having decided to start my own label Gingerbread Man Records with my label Atlantic Records, the first artist I had to sign was Jamie. Starting Gingerbread Man Records means I can put music I love out there on a huge platform, and Jamie seemed like the perfect choice for my first release.”
‘Jamie Lawson’ will be released in Australia on Friday October 09.
