|Jamie Webster and legendary activist singer-songwriter, Billy Bragg come together in the tall tale of Fickle Fran, a carousing, brass-and-choir door-kicker of an indie-soul anthem – OUT NOW.|
Only the second preview of what lies in store on Webster’s third album, 10 For The People, confirmed for release on Fri 2 February 2024 on Modern Sky, the release follows the socially-aware, field-filling musician’s summer single, Voice Of The Voiceless, his busiest season of outdoor shows and lands just ahead of seven huge winter tour dates, including TWO SOLD OUT dates at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse.
Pulled into mutual orbit by their articulate depictions of working-class interests, Webster and Bragg’s inevitable studio collaboration follows Jamie’s performance on Billy’s specially-curated Left Field Stage at Glastonbury this summer.
Making headlines as well as records, with Webster famously going after rip-off ticket resale sites, and Bragg only recently rebuking Oliver Anthony’s problematic viral hit, both of their voices appearing on Fickle Fran, a loving and vivid depiction of a the precarious life of a door-to-door entrepreneur, offers a bridge from Bragg’s emergence in the early 80s and Webster’s recent rise. It’s a generational leap, yet both are the first to recognise how many people’s unchanged struggle to thrive has faced the same, predictable obstacles.
2023 has seen Webster tear through his biggest ever Glastonbury appearance, swelling the Avalon Stage tent to bursting in June, hit the main stages of both Glasgow’s TRNSMT and Reading and Leeds Festivals and enjoy two nights in front of a combined 24,000 people at two headline dates at Liverpool’s Pier Head. Not holding anything back in pursuit of his ambitions as he rises with his fans from his beginnings as an electrician dreaming of bringing his songs to wider audiences, Webster last month announced he will play a 40,000-capacity show at his home city’s Sefton Park for next July.
Before then, and ahead of more new music being released, Webster takes off on a huge winter UK Tour. With an added date in Glasgow, an upgrade in Sheffield and a showpiece night ahead at London’s iconic Roundhouse, all of his currently confirmed live dates are as follows:
