Tom will play a series of intimate concert venues across Europe throughout April, including a date at London’s Islington Assembly Hall. Tickets for these shows will be allocated via a ticket lottery.
“I wanted the songs to sound big and dramatic; big strings and melodies emphasizing the songs further – rich in musicality and holding nothing back. The album follows a narrative of a man held at ransom by his childhood, yearning for it, yearning for nature- a desire for innocence in this perverse world in which he now lives. It’s a fictional story but the emotions and feelings are obviously ones I have felt – though the stories are elaborated and exaggerated. I wanted to create a world with a heightened sense of reality.”
“Magnetised” was released as the second single from the album on April 15th. The video for the title track was shot in South Africa by George Belfield
The album comes preceded by the title’s and opening track “Wrong Crowd” written by Odell with the collaboration of Rick Nowels, which was released along the pre-order on iTunes on April 4th. The same day he also premiered the video directed by George Belfield through Vevo.
