On May 18, new-soul singer Jamie Lidell new record, Compass, will come out on Warp Records. But he’s not going it alone. Compass will feature contributions from Beck, Feist, Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear and Pat Sansone of Wilco.

“I wrote every song in a month,” Lidell said in a statement. “It’s been an emotional couple of years, so I tapped into what I wanted to say and started writing. There was a lot to draw on.”

Lidell will also be hitting the road at some point in 2010.
