Tom Odell heads to 'Jubilee Road'

Tom Odell's third studio album Jubilee Road is set for release on Oct. 12 on RCA Records.

Although the album title may be a fictional street name, the release documents real life stories of the time Tom spent living in a house in East London with his then girlfriend.

While only 27 years old, Jubilee Road may well be a career-defining record for Odell, which sees the multi-talented young artist writing, singing, playing piano and self-producing the songs.

Speaking about the album Tom says:

“I wrote this album in a house on a quiet terraced street in East London. The lyrics are inspired by the lives of the friends I made whilst living there. I recorded most the songs in the living room of the house and if I listen back closely, I can still hear the sound of the old man’s television shows coming through the walls from next door, the kids from the house opposite playing football in the street below and the sound of my girlfriend’s footsteps on the wooden floorboards above. I don’t live there anymore, my life has changed somewhat, but I will always remember the time fondly and I hope you enjoy listening to the album as much as I did making it”.

Track listing:

1. Jubilee Road
2. If You Wanna Love Somebody
3. Son Of An Only Child
4. You’re Going To Break My Heart Tonight
5. China Dolls
6. Queen Of Diamonds
7. Half As Good As You

Tom recently performed first single “If You Wanna Love Somebody” on The Graham Norton Show airing on BBC 1. It is the first new material released since Odell’s 2016 second album Wrong Crowd, which debuted at #2 on the UK album chart.

His singles “Another Love” and “Real Love” both hit the UK Top 10, with the latter, a cover of a track by The Beatles - used for the UK John Lewis’ Christmas TV 2014 ad campaign.
