Tom Grennan Reveals His New Single ‘Something Better‘ from his forthcoming album ‘Evering Road‘
The new track takes on a whole new meaning as we look ahead to 2021. Tom’s infectious energy creates an anthem for hope and optimism.
Tom new single ‘Something Better’ is taken from Tom’s highly anticipated second album ‘Evering Road’, due for release March 5th, 2021 via Insanity Records and also set to include soaring first single ‘This Is The Place’, the soulful, introspective ‘Oh Please’ and the gospel-tinged ‘Amen’. Looking forward to ‘Something Better’, Tom says:
“When I wrote Something Better, it was a song about me smiling on the outside but dealing with a whirlwind of dark thoughts and distractions on the inside. Since Covid-19 and lockdown, the tables have turned! I’m smiling on the inside, and I’m constantly distracted with thoughts of the exciting, crazy and better future that is coming, and it’s just around the corner!”
Tom’s boundless enthusiasm for performance and connection has prevailed. Following the announcement of ‘Evering Road’, Tom performed a virtual headline Brixton Academy show, live-streamed in 360°.
Having previously sold-out the iconic venue upon release of his breakthrough debut album ‘Lighting Matches’, the show marked a welcome return, with Tom’s performance compared to “early Tom Waits: the same tender caress of the piano, the same barfly world-weariness. Boy, has he got some lungs” by The Telegraph. As well as featuring on ‘Summer In The City’, the lead track from Fraser T Smith’s new album, and performing an exclusive live-streamed gig at The Holy Trinity Morgan Church in London, Tom also performed at Newcastle’s Virgin Money Unity Arena – a landmark show at the UK’s first ever socially distanced venue.
The forthcoming album ‘Evering Road’ will follow ‘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 UK Top Five record, ‘Lighting Matches’ has amassed over a quarter of a billion streams, seen sold out shows at The Royal Albert Hall, Brixton Academy, and won over thousands of fans at festivals including Reading And Leeds, Isle Of Wight, TRNSMT, Latitude and a host of other events.
