Jamie T's Power Over Men is his best single in ages

Jamie T's previous single, Tinfoil Boy, was a great radio statement; a punkish peal of "look who's back" thunder. But I have to admit his new single is much more my cup of tea.

The story of a beguiling femme fatale, Power Over Men marries a loping reggae shuffle to Jamie's trademark wit and lyricism. "Her vanity's dressed up as virtue in brogue shoes and art schools with tatoos," he croons, before observing: "She was never academic. She couldn't draw a thing."

Premiering the track on Annie Mac's Radio 1 show last night, he said the track came to him in a flash.

"It's one of those songs that was a real rarity in the songwriting," he said. "I wrote it in one afternoon and recorded it the next day, which doesn't normally happen."

Listen to the song and interview below.
