NEW ALBUM ‘EVERING ROAD’ DUE MARCH 12TH VIA INSANITY RECORDS
UK HEADLINE TOUR FOR SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2021
INCLUDES BIGGEST HEADLINE SHOW TO DATE AT ALEXANDRA PALACE
Tom Grennan has today shared ‘Make My Mind Up’, a stunning new ballad taken from his anticipated second album ‘Evering Road’, due March 12th via Insanity.
‘Make My Mind Up’ is a deeply personal song, written at a time when Tom was at a crossroads in the relationship that inspired the making of his new album.
Speaking about the track, Tom says “I had so many voices in my head, and people telling me what to do. It was a toxic game of tug-of-war, and I learnt it was only me who could make the decision. ‘Make My Mind Up’ is about making the final call to leave the relationship, and moving on.”
‘Make My Mind Up’ follows Tom’s latest single release ‘Little BIt Of Love’ which, alongside ‘Let’s Go Home Together’ with Ella Henderson, saw Tom achieve #1 and #2 in The Official Big Top 40, Official iTunes Chart and two positions in the Official UK Top 40. Tom and Ella performed ‘Let’s Go Home Together’ live on The Graham Norton Show and ‘Little Bit Of Love’ is currently playlisted at BBC Radio 1, tipped as “Grennan’s return could be his first No.1.” by the Guardian, “one of the country’s bright young musical talents” by British GQ, “epic” by the NME, and “the ultimate Gen Z rock star” by The Sun.
Named after the East London address Tom shared with his then-partner, ‘Evering Road’ is a hub of love, heartbreak and redemption. A bold and exciting new chapter shot through with raw emotion and searing honesty, set to include the singles ‘Little Bit Of Love’, ‘This Is The Place’, ‘Amen’ and more.
Tom Grennan will perform a UK headline tour through September and October 2021, including his biggest ever UK headline show to date at London’s Alexandra Palace – a landmark gig at the iconic 10,000 capacity venue.
Despite the nationwide restrictions, Tom has maintained a vast audience in the live arena, with his latest virtual interactive gig receiving overwhelming demand as he debuted new music to over 27,000 fans who rushed to join the live stream. October 2020 saw a full circle moment as Tom headlined London’s O2 Academy Brixton for a second time, with a virtual gig live-streamed in 360 described as “authentic magic” by The Telegraph and “major league pop music” by Dork Magazine.
Through the lockdown, Tom has continued to use his platform and voice to give back to his community, promoting positive mental health through acts of kindness. Recently announced as UK face of Tommy Hilfiger’s ‘Moving Forward Together’ campaign, Tom’s lent support volunteering with Bedford Foodbank, launching virtual support groups for fans on social media, and running 100K for War Child’s ‘Peace Band’ to raise awareness for children living in conflict.
‘Evering Road’ is the anticipated follow up to ‘Lighting Matches’ – Tom’s breakthrough album that cemented him as one of the UK’s most vital and exciting new artists, and one of the Top Ten best-selling debuts of 2018. A Top Five UK Gold-certified record, ‘Lighting Matches’ has amassed over a quarter of a billion streams, seen sold out headline shows at The Royal Albert Hall, O2 Academy Brixton and won over thousands of fans at festivals including Reading & Leeds, Isle Of Wight, TRNSMT, Latitude and a host of other events.
