Tom Odell news

When I caught Odell live at Coachella a couple years ago, it was among the highlights of the festival for me. I look forward to his new material...
Tom Odell just released "Magnetised," the first single from his forthcoming album Wrong Crowd, due out on June 10 via RCA Records. The video, filmed in South Africa and directed by George Belfield, is a continuation of the "Wrong Crowd" video released earlier this month.

The upcoming album is available for pre-order now, and is the follow up his 2013’s million selling, #1 UK debuting album Long Way Down. That debut album earned the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year and the Brits Critics’ Choice Award.

Wrong Crowd consists of 11 songs and 4 bonus tracks (see below). Fans who pre-order the album will receive the single “Magnetized” and title track “Wrong Crowd” instantly.

The album was co-produced by Tom Odell and Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Placebo).

Tom said of the new album, “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.”

Tom will play a series of intimate concert venues across Europe throughout April and in the US in May, including sold-out dates at New York’s Mercury Lounge on May 4 and Los Angeles’ The Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever on May 6.
