You’d think that a show-stealing set at Montreux followed by a week-long conquest of New York culminating in a performance with Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden would leave jazz pianist Jamie Cullum feeling a little worn out as he gears up for the January 27 US release of his new album, Interlude.

Not even close. Cullum, now the biggest-selling jazz artist in UK history, has just announced two more MSG dates with Billy Joel: November 25 and December 18 (tickets available here – for now). Until then, fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will instantly receive two of the album’s tracks, including first single, “Good Morning Heartache” (physical copies of the album are also now available for pre-order at Amazon). As if this wasn’t enough for Cullum and his fans, he’s also announced the early 2015 release of a new issue of his own magazine, The Eighty-Eight, featuring essays, stories and photographs curated by the man himself. In fact, Cullum, also an amateur photographer, took a number of shots that will appear in the booklet accompanying the deluxe edition of Interlude. Seriously, when does he find time to sleep?

Got something to say?
