Why do we like this?

I was devastated when Bombay Bicycle Club announced an indefinite hiatus last year. But there’s some light at the end of the tunnel today with Bombay guitarist and lead singer Jack Steadman releasing his new solo album as Mr Jukes. God First is inspired by Steadman's love of jazz, soul and funk, boasting collaborations with Lianne La Havas, BJ The Chicago Kid and De La Soul.


“Grant Green” features vocals from soul-king Charles Bradley and combines Bombay’s feel good hooks with some horn heavy neo-soul. There’s also backing vocals that sound remarkably like Steadman’s long time collaborator and friend Lucy Rose (to be confirmed, but tell me I’m wrong?).


The album is funky, feel good and soulful; a step in a new but familiar direction for Steadman after Bombay’s conclusion last year. He’s touring the UK and Europe with a 9-piece band. We can only hope that tour extends further afield.


God First is out now.
