Tom Odell is set to release new album 'Wrong Crowd' on June 10th.
The songwriter went into the studio last year to work on the follow up to his million-selling debut album, 2013's 'Long Way Down'.
Jim Abiss sat in on production, with Tom Odell commenting:
“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.”
The video for the title track was shot in South Africa by George Belfield - check it out now.
'Wrong Crowd' will be released on June 10th. Tracklisting:
1. Wrong Crowd
6. Still Getting Used to Being On My Own
10. Here I Am
