(New York- April 14, 2016) Tom Odell today releases “Magnetised,” the first single from his forthcoming album WRONG CROWD due out on June 10 via RCA Records. The rousing new single features a driving drumbeat and soaring chorus, showcasing the progression of Tom’s sound on his new album, while still channeling the raw emotion and honesty his songwriting is known for. The video, filmed in South Africa and directed by George Belfield, is a continuation of the “Wrong Crowd” video released earlier this month.
WRONG CROWD, the album, is 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 the album will receive the single “Magnetized” and title track “Wrong Crowd” instantly.

The album was co-produced by Tom Odell and Jim Abbiss, who has also produced records for artists including Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, and Adele.
WRONG CROWD is the follow-up album to Tom Odell’s 2013 million selling #1 UK debuting album Long Way Down, a campaign which 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.”
