“We’re only one human race…Many faces…Everybody belongs here”

25th July 2018

It was a joy on the May tour to see ‘Many Faces’ become such an instant crowd favourite, and the spontaneous singalongs—for a brand new unreleased song, no less!—were something to behold.

Delighted to finally be able to share a studio recording of it with you today.

The radio edit of Many Faces is here on WeAreJamesTV for your listening enjoyment, and if you pre-order the album (or have done already) from either our official shop partner or from iTunes, you’ll get a free instant download of the song (as well as Coming Home, Hank and Better Than That).

You can also now watch the track’s commentary video featuring Tim plus producers Charlie Andrew and Beni Giles chatting about the song on TM Stores’ James landing page.

The return of James + The Charlatans!

13th July 2018

“We are pleased to announce our four big shows playing with The Charlatans in December 2018.

These follow on from the success and sheer enjoyment of our December 2016 gig together at Liverpool Echo Arena. It was a pleasure and a privilege to play with them then and that sentiment is repeated here.

It’s a great double bill. ‘One plus one equals three’ as the great Peter Rudge puts it. So get your tickets early to prevent disappointment.

See you there folks.” — Jim from James.
