New song and vid kicks off a busy 2022 for Jimi. At least two new music albums planned for release this year.

Jimi has released another song from his forthcoming new album releases.

Entitled 'Johnnie Armstrong' it tells the tale of the legendary Borders Chieftan who was betrayed by Scottish King James V and lured to his death at Carlenrig Kirk near Teviothead south of Hawick in the Scottish Borders.

The song was co-written by Jimi and guitarist Neil Warden and will feature on Jimi's new album, his first in eight years, to be released this Spring. This will be followed up with a second new album in the second part of 2022, with the possibility of a third release after that.

"To date we have over 15 new songs and we're still composing" said Jimi. "The first album release will be focusing on the Borders, where I grew up with tales of the landscape, people and the Border Reivers who, of course, dominated the area for hundreds of years when Scotland and England were independent states. 

"The second release, planned for early Autumn, will have similar themes but perhaps a broader historic appeal. Pipes will feature on both albums where appropriate."
