Hard to believe but it’s been 20 years since JAMIE CULLUM released his breakthrough album, ‘Twentysomething’! To mark the occasion, Mr. C and his team are reissuing the set on vinyl for the very first time – and it will be good to go exactly 20 years after it was first released (20th October 2003) this Friday, October 20th!
This special 20th anniversary edition features the original album across three sides with a selection of non-album tracks, and session recordings on the fourth side, along with a bonus version of ‘Everlasting Love’, his 2004 UK No. 20 single, originally recorded for the ‘Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason’ film soundtrack.
Now the stats: ‘Twentysomething’ peaked at No. 3 on the UK Album Chart, spending almost a year on the Top 75, and reached No. 83 on the US Billboard 200. On the specialist charts, it made No. 1 on the UK Official Jazz & Blues Album Chart, and No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Jazz Albums chart. The album has since sold over 3 million copies worldwide, with over 1 million sales in the UK (3 x BPI ‘Platinum’ Award) and holds the honour of being the fastest selling jazz album in chart history, with its sales in 2003 leading to Jamie being the UK’s highest selling jazz artist in history.
Now the info: ‘Twentysomething – 20th anniversary edition’ released Friday 20th October via Decca and Universal Music.
