(New York- June 6, 2016) Tom Odell is set to release his second album WRONG CROWD this Friday, June 10 via RCA Records. Tom will be performing his current single “Magnetised” on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” tomorrow, June 7th and on “The Today Show” on June 29th. Click here to watch his performance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” WRONG CROWD, available for pre-order now, and is the follow up his 2013’s million selling, #1 UK debuting album Long Way Down. Long Way Down, his debut album was met with tremendous critical reaction and earned him the highly 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. Fans who pre-order WRONG CROWD will receive the title track and first single “Magnetised,” along with additional album tracks “Constellations” and “Somehow” instantly.
The videos for “Wrong Crowd,” and “Magnetised” were shot in South Africa, and directed by George Belfield (Arthur Beatrice, Richard Hawley, Kwabs) The storyline for the “Magnetised” video is a continuation of the “Wrong Crowd” video which also includes a portion of the song “Constellations.”
Tom recently wrapped a slew of underplay shows in Europe, New York and Los Angeles to rave response. The UK Telegraph wrote of his London show that Odell was “electrifying…with a big, bold, bravura performance … a whole layer of charismatic rock swagger…Odell might be the missing link between showboating Seventies Elton and the epic emotionalism of Coldplay. In a set where new songs were greeted just as rapturously as old favourites, Odell did more than enough to suggest …his (Brit) Critics Choice Award might not be his last.”
The album was co-produced by Tom Odell and Jim Abbiss, who has also produced records for artists including Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, and Adele.
His previous album Long Way Down saw Tom Odell accomplish many milestones: winning the Brits Critics’ Choice Award in 2013 at the age of 22 with his debut album, receiving the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year in 2014, being nominated for two more Brit awards in 2014 for Best Male and Best Newcomer, and touring extensively across the world and opening for Billy Joel on several U.S. dates. Tom garnered over 200 million cumulative views on YouTube, and accumulated 8 Gold and 2 Platinum certifications around the world. 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.
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.”
