This dumb dancefloor banger finds Jamie T a self-declared "sad post-teen" as he succumbs to the crippling state of torpor that results from creative inactivity. Jamie told Time Out how he overcomes being unproductive. "There's lots of different tricks you can use to get yourself writing again," he said. "The best one's probably to read a book. Just seeing someone else say something in a different way immediately sparks you out of your own s--t. On this record, I was reading a lot of Ted Hughes. Lots of Plath and Alvarez."
Jamie T won three gongs at the 2015 NME Awards. He took home the best track and best videos awards for this song as well as his Carry on the Grudge comeback album being deemed the music moment of the year.
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
