Tom Odell releases ‘Wrong Crowd’
Tom Odell has released his highly anticipated second album Wrong Crowd today.
The album, featuring hit single Magnetised, was produced by Jim Abbiss, who has also produced records for artists including Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian and Adele.
Tom said, “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.”
Tom released his debut album Long Way Down in 2013. The album has sold more than one million copies to date. 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 John Lewis’ Christmas TV ad campaign of 2014.
