Having helped make Stranger Things 4 the enormous success that it was thanks to his role as Vecna, Jamie Campbell Bower is now turning his hand back to music.

The actor and musician – formerly of ace London punks COUNTERFEIT. – revealed in an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that he would be sharing new solo single, I Am, on August 12. “I’m so excited,” Jamie told Jimmy. “Everything just feels not real right now!”

Speaking to Kerrang! about his next musical chapter, Jamie revealed last month: “For me, this is a new chapter of my artistic exploration. Being sort of on my own now has allowed me to go and be more free in the creative process. I can now kind of go, ‘Well, we can do whatever we want,’ and then we’ll just make that work in a live setting. It's taking all the things that I loved in COUNTERFEIT. – a lot of the rock elements – and blending it with things that perhaps weren’t suitable for COUNTERFEIT. But mainly this is an opportunity for me to kind of just be more expressive.”
