Jamie Lidell celebrates the birth of his son “Julian” on new song — listen

on October 05, 2016, 3:03pm

On October 14th, Jamie Lidell will return with his follow-up to his 2013 self-titled effortBuilding a Beginning. Coming via Jajulin Records, much of the album addresses the duality of romantic and familial love, with his new family playing a major role in its creation. Not only did his wife, Lindsey Rome, assist and writing many of the lyrics, but their newborn son was a major inspiration. No song makes that more clear than the LP’s latest single, “Julian”.

Over bright, hopeful neo-soul, Lidell croons about how welcoming his now-one-year-old son has changed his outlook on life. “Now you’re here and life’s a dream/ You’re the only reality worth understanding,” he sings as he leads into the first chorus of, “I can’t believe/ The way your face/ Is taking over, taking the place/ Of all the dark I always face.” Check out the song below.

Building a Beginning has also been previewed with “Walk Right Back” and the title track.
