The artist born Jack Latham will release his latest full-length, Jam City Presents EFM, this summer.
Jam City has today (22 March) announced his next album. Jam City Presents EFM will be released on 1 June via the producer’s own label, Earthly. The 10-track release was unveiled alongside a new single entitled Times Square – which features vocal contributions from Aidan and a sample-flip of Detroit icon Omar S.
The likes of Clara La San, Wet and Empress Of also guest on the record, which has been described as a “love letter to the purest dancefloor experiences imaginable”. Track Redd St. Turbulence, featuring Show Me The Body’s Julian Cashwan-Pratt, was released last month. Watch the Times Square visual in the player above.
Taking to Instagram prior to the album’s unveiling, Jam City outlined some potential meanings for the record’s title: “Electric Flight Music”, “Every Freak Moves”, “Endless Fantasy Mode” and more. In a press statement discussing the album, he further detailed the inspiration behind the release.
“When I first started writing this record, in my head, I was 18, back in the Liquid & Envy in my hometown of Redhill on a Saturday Night. Fuck London, I’d only been a few times for school trips anyway. This was where it was at,” he said. “Walking through the doors to Photek’s Mine to Give, it felt like you’d walked into Studio 54 or something. There’s a mural of the Manhattan skyline preposterously splashed over the bar, neon everywhere and the floors are sticky with cheap champagne. Shivering in the rain-soaked car park, a group of girls from my school share a lighter with the local bikers in their leathers; Harley, Honda, Yamaha…”

Last November, Jam City reissued his seminal debut album Classical Curves with unheard material recorded during the album sessions. The record – which Crack Magazine ranked as one of the top 100 albums of the 2010s – originally came out on Night Slugs. In 2015, Jam City released his second album Dream a Garden, which was followed-up in 2020 with the release of Pillowlands. Away from his solo releases, Jam City has also spent time venturing into the world of pop, working with the likes of Olivia Rodrigo, Troye Sivan and Lil Yachty.
