Out now: Tom Goss album 'Territories'

Singer, songwriter and veteran musician Tom Goss has released seventh studio album Territories. It includes the latest single and piano-driven ballad "Berlin," which is based on a personal tale about finding another lover after learning of his husband's infidelity.

Goss also issued the black and white music video for the song, filmed in Berlin. PRESS HERE to watch. Amidst the darkest hour of their marriage, Tom and his husband chose an unconventional solution in an effort to steady the ship - staying married but initiating "an open relationship with boundaries." Soon after, Goss took a trip to Berlin, where he started to discover what love and sexuality meant to him. As he began to fall in love with someone else, Goss learned to process how he could love both a new man and his husband. PRESS HERE to download/stream "Berlin."

"This record speaks of love in so many complicated ways," Goss shares. "I don't believe life is black-and-white. When I went through the whole experience, I believed myself to be a horrible failure, but that's not fair. We're constantly changing as humans. We compare ourselves to an ideal, or singular perception, and that's not real. I'd like to send the message that it's okay if your history is imperfect, your love still is."

Previous single "La Bufadora" depicts a fictionalized story of an abusive relationship while highlighting the reality of domestic violence within the LGBTQ community. Statistics show that within the LGBTQ community, intimate partner violence occurs at a rate equal to or higher than that of the heterosexual community. Proceeds from the song and video will be donated to the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the Los Angeles LGBT Center; PRESS HERE to watch the video starring Mean Girls actor Daniel Franzese.

First single "Quayside" tells the story of diving into a polyamorous relationship, a journey littered with potential dangers. The track wrestles with Goss' own perceptions of love and relationships, providing a candid snapshot of his own life. PRESS HERE to watch the official music video.

Tom Goss is a singer-songwriter who went from a quiet childhood in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to wrestling at the college level in Missouri before eventually entering a Washington, DC seminary, leaving the priesthood after a year, and marrying his husband.

Since the launch of a successful music career in 2006, the Los Angeles-based artist has delivered six fan-favorite independent albums, generated over 10 million collective streams and 12 million views, landed syncs everywhere from ABC and HBO to Univision, and performed alongside Andy Grammer, Taylor Dayne, and more.
