Liam Bailey shares new single 'Villains'

Liam Bailey

(Shane McCauley)

Liam Bailey is a singer-songwriter who works miles away from the navel-gazing acoustic approach that his job title suggests. He cites Oasis and Led Zeppelin among his major influences, boasts an encyclopedic knowledge of vintage R&B and soul, and has collaborated with dance, pop, and hip-hop musicians.

After a pair of EPs recorded for Amy Winehouse’s Lioness label and a crossover hit with British dance music crew Chase & Status, Bailey is about to finally release his debut LP. Definitely Now comes out August 19 on Salaam Remi’s Flying Buddha imprint. It’ll include the track “Villain,” a psychedelic stomper that sounds something like Hendrix covering a White Stripes track. We have an exclusive early listen below.
