The latest album Taller sees Jamie bravely explore more personal subject matter with a fresh sense of authenticity, each song reflecting a desire to grow and learn and explore life for the beautiful muddle it is.

Of title track Taller, Jamie said: “Historically there has been jokes about my physical stature and being married to a taller woman - so I wanted to own it. Using this as a jumping off point it became a song about the need to grow within your relationship and meet each other eye to eye.”

Other tracks on the album have prominent funk, pop and gospel influences such as Usher, Drink and the powerful Mankind.

Jamie Cullum: Taller is at York Barbican on Wednesday March 11.
