Jamie Irrepressible returns, after a 6-year hiatus of collaborations, with a third album from his creative guise The Irrepressibles. Titled "Superheroes", the new sonic work takes cues from the Prog, Kraut-Rock and Electronica movements which influenced him during his time living in Berlin, as well as in his teenage years. Telling the story of a poignant and heroic homosexual love, "Superheroes" is a fantasy concept album about the boy within us that always remains, learns to heal, and eventually falls in love.
This album follows Jamie’s impressively eclectic body of work as an artist, including two critically acclaimed albums ("Mirror Mirror" from 2010, and "Nude" from 2012) that were seminal works in the recent Chamber Pop and LGBTQ+ movements. Jamie’s distinct vocals have led to collaborations in electronic music with like-minded creatives such as ionnalee and touring and recording with Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp on the album "The Inevitable End" (2014).
"Superheroes" is scheduled to be released on May 22nd through Of Naked Design Records. The Special Edition Double Vinyl will also include the 3-track EP "This Time I'll Let Go of Fear", the prelude to "Superheroes".
