It’s been four years since Jamie Woon released his debut album Mirrorwriting. The artist has now revealed the first single taken from a soon to be announced new album due for release later in 2015 on new label home, PMR Records.
It was Pharrell who introduced Sharpness to the world on his Beats 1 radio show a few weeks ago, followed quickly by his friends and previous collaborators, Disclosure when they took the track into Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show.

In the time since Mirrorwriting, Woon has spent time exploring his writing and recording with new collaborators. His new full-length sees him maintaining the same distinctive Woon sound and thoughtful/crafted songwriting but opting for a live and up-close approach to the rhythm section, in a move away from his previous mostly electronic underpinning.
Sharpness will be available to buy and stream from August 11th.
