The Jaded Hearts Club are a collective of musicians, drawn together from several high profile bands. The band was formed by guitarist Jamie Davis, and the line-up consists of Miles Kane (The Last Shadow Puppets), Nic Cester (Jet), Graham Coxon (Blur), Matt Bellamy (Muse) and Sean Payne (The Zutons). Yesterday, The Jaded Hearts Club released their new single 'Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)' along with a fun lyric video.
The band are known for discovering long-lost classics and putting their own spin on things - with the result being an electric and blistering listen.. 'Do I love You (Indeed I do)' was recorded in LA with Aleks Von Korff (Coldplay, Muse) handling production duties. This is the band's first new studio recording since their debut album ‘You’ve Always Been Here’.
This new single has the feelgood factor - more of a dancefloor anthem than a spiky rock track, it features live instrumentation and and huge vocals. The original version of the song was set to be released by Frank Wilson in 1965 until Motown founder Berry Gordon decided not to release the single and to destroy almost all copies. Some remained however and 'Do I Love You (Indeed I Do) became an underground cult classic, after being bootlegged and distributed DJ's. One of the original pressings sold for £100,000 at auction last year.
Nic Cester says, “The story behind Frank Wilson and how this masterpiece was made and lost is fascinating in itself. It’s great to have a chance to bring this song back to life, it seems so simple but there is so much talent on the original recording. It’s an absolute classic Northern Soul song - heavy beat, fast tempo underground soul music.”
With more recordings scheduled for release and with plans to perform live, The Jaded Hearts Club are an established super group whose members are formed from the cream of indie rock.
