New single and spring tour for Jamie Cullum

On January 25th 2010 Jamie Cullum will be releasing a new single taken from his recent album “The Pursuit”. “Don’t Stop The Music” will be instantly recognizable as a Rhianna track, but with the Cullum touch. It will be available as a download only. Talking about the track, Jamie says “There's a real science to choosing covers. Back when I did ‘High And Dry’ and ‘Frontin' it wasn't as common but doing covers has always been part of my DNA as a jazz musician. Often I'll think of a tune to do and someone else will get there first. I was going to do ‘Every Heartbeat’ by Robyn but Girls Aloud did it for Radio One! I thought ‘someone is really smart’. I did ‘Umbrella’ the day after it was released but soon enough, everyone was doing it. With ‘Don't Stop The Music’ it was the lyric that grabbed me. It is such a sexy lyric. And I was able to transform the song into something totally new sounding.

Jamie has also announced a full UK tour, his first for 5 years, which includes two nights at London’s Palladium. The dates in full are:
