Kings & Queens reached No. 2 in the UK Albums chart.

Six days later, he postponed the first six shows of his sellout UK tour On 24 June 2010, Jamie T performed material from the Kings & Queens album at the Engine Shed in Lincoln as a warm-up to his tour.

Album · 2009 · 12 Songs. Glossier than Jamie T's debut, Kings & Queens is no less incisive about modern Britain. There are bad nights out ( Sticks and Stones ), illicit affairs ( Spider's Web ), and prescient condemnations of the surveillance state ( British Intelligence ) wedded to Treays' usual hotchpotch of music influences. 368 uses a milk bottle as percussion, and gives way to strange sampled vocals and chanting. Emily's Heart is a lilting murder ballad, while Chaka Demus and Earth, Wind & Fire nod to soul
Jamie Treays sings about the important things in life. The exact amount of millilitres of beer it takes to make life worth living. The need to visit Cuba before Fidel Castro dies. The Wimbledon troubadour encountered the usual Second Album Syndrome blues as he worried about how to follow 2007's Mercury-nominated Panic Prevention. Kings and Queens very nearly ended up a Dylanesque acoustic set and/or a take on US hardcore punk before he and his production partner, Ben Bones, realised that doing what they do but better was probably a smarter idea than career suicide. The result is a 43-minute, all-killer, no-filler set of stunners about city sickness, aimless rebellion and dissolving relationships. It's hard to pick which of these songs to highlight . Because the Kings and Queens here are pawns in disguise. And Jamie T knows exactly how they feel.
Jamie T – Kings & Queens (2009). Artist: Jamie T. Album: Kings & Queens.
Kings and Queens is a resounding success. Okay, maybe it's a tried and true formula that Jamie T and Ben Bones have created, but their textured, layered songs each have something new to offer upon every listen, and they've mastered the art to near perfection. Jamie T and the Pacemakers have most certainly cemented their position as Merry Pranksters, injecting their youthful effervescence into a musical landscape that can take things far too seriously. 9. Brianna Saraceno's Score.

Take his novel approach to getting around the sophomore slump. How did the 23-year-old outfox any demons that might’ve dogged him while crafting Kings & Queens, the follow-up to his 2007 debut Panic Prevention? I didn't do my second album, he says. I did my third one instead. He makes it sound so easy. Such is the insouciance of youth. After all, Jamie Treays wrote and recorded the bulk of Panic Prevention while still a teenager, living under his parents’ roof in Wimbledon, South London
