Jamie Lidell is an album by Jamie Lidell released in 2013 and produced by Lidell and Justin Stanley in Lidell's Nashville, Tennessee studio.[1] The lead single, "What a Shame," was released on YouTube on Nov 16, 2012.[2]

Lidell cited Janet Jackson as the inspiration for the album, saying "I got into Rhythm Nation and Control and thought 'these are amazing songs, why don't they make them like this anymore? I want to make them like that!' So that's what kicked it off for me."[3] Lidell added, "it’s the sound of the era I was going for, that [Janet Jackson] "Rhythm Nation" vocal sound.”[4]

Consequence of Sound ranked the album four out of five stars, while Pitchfork gave the album a mediocre review.[11][15] The album's blend of synthesized electropop and "futuristic" industrial music was praised and likened to "Janet Jackson's groundbreaking 1986 album, Control" by About.com.[16] The electronic drum intro of "Big Love" was also described as reminiscent of Jackson's hit "The Pleasure Principle."[17]

Spin gave the album a 8 out of 10, "Though the Minneapolis Sound is new territory for Lidell, he capably imports the dweeby, self-doubting, cyborg-Lothario persona that made Multiply a hit, now with enough confidence that a song like “You Naked” hits a bullseye that earlier incarnations would’ve missed".
