That’s Tyler James above – handsome bugger, eh?
Here’s what he has to say about his cover version of ‘Your Woman.’
Tell us about the single. It’s a cover, isn’t it?
T.J.: ‘Your Woman’ – originally by White Town. I just finished filming the video this week.
Why that song?
T.J.: I loved it when I was growing up. It was out when I was about eleven or twelve and it’s a song that’s always stayed with me. I’ve always loved the sample. I did try adapting the lyrics but decided in the end to stick with the original. It’s just got something about it.

I haven’t heard the cover yet but I’m immensely flattered that he’s chosen to cover one of my songs. I look forward to hearing him sing:
“so much for all your highbrow, Marxist ways…”
I guess this means I’ll get another slew of puzzled emails asking whether I’m gay / a woman / a commie / a gay, commie woman…
Just in case you’re wondering what the hell that song is about, have a look here.
Well, the album is coming along well, it’s 90% written, 70% recorded and 40% produced.
I was going to have a lot of guest musicians on this album, backing vocalists, guitarists etcetera.
But it’s become such a personal album, it doesn’t feel right. So, I think this album will be like ‘Socialism, Sexism & Sexuality,’ just me.
When I have finished tracks, I’ll post clips up for your perusal. All I can say is that I honestly think it’s some of the best, poppiest work I’ve ever done.
Keep watching the skies!
