Jamie Lenman has released a new single, Talk Hard.

The singalong rock song, out now via Big Scary Monsters, is the first preview of Lenman's recent experimentation with a more mainstream-friendly sound. He explained:

“I’ve been trying for a long time to do something a bit more melodic, and Talk Hard is the first flowering of that. People tell me they can hear Weezer in there which is great as they’ve always been heroes of mine, particularly the first two albums.”

“Lyrically it’s about standing up for yourself, for making sure that your voice is heard by people you feel are ignoring you—be that your friends, your family, your boss or even your government. It’s about encouraging and empowering people, standing behind them and lending them your support. Very positive, after all the negative feelings from King Of Clubs.”

The track is accompanied by a video featuring Lenman and hula-hoop performer Amazi Hoop. It was directed by Jen Hingley of Manchester band False Advertising, who plays guitar in Lenman's live band.

The single arrives ahead of the former Reuben frontman's set on the Yokhai Stage at ArcTanGent festival on August 19. 

Lenman's released his most recent studio album, 'King Of Clubs', in 2020.
