On Friday, Tom Odell released brand new track ”Jubilee Road”, taken from his forthcoming third studio album of the same name. The opener on the incredible new album, ”Jubilee Road” see’s Odell draw the listener into the affecting real-life dramas he paints within the song.
Watch the accompanying video for ”Jubilee Road” above.
Tom has also shared full details of the new album, which is set for release on October 12 on Columbia Records.
Although the title of the new album may be fictional in itself, ‘Jubilee Road’ may well be Odell’s most honest and personal outing so far. Packed with grandstanding melodies and scintillating performances, ‘Jubilee Road’ intertwines real-life stories of the time Tom spent living in a house in East London.
Still only 27, ‘Jubilee Road’ may well be a career-defining record for Odell, which sees the multi-talented young artist take full control of his music, not only writing, singing, and vamping up his vibrant piano style on all ten songs but also self-producing them.
Speaking about the album Tom said, “I wrote this album in a house on a quiet terraced street in East London. The lyrics are inspired by the lives of the friends I made whilst living there. I recorded most of the songs in the living room of the house and if I listen back closely, I can still hear the sound of the old man’s television shows coming through the walls from next door, the kids from the house opposite playing football in the street below and the sound of my girlfriend’s footsteps on the wooden floorboards above. I don’t live there anymore, my life has changed somewhat, but I will always remember the time fondly and I hope you enjoy listening to the album as much as I did making it”.
News of the album follows the release of Odell’s brand new single If You Wanna Love Somebody. Tom performed the single on The Graham Norton Show just one week later. A passionate, expertly-crafted love song about a broken relationship, seeing him once again revisit the theme of his breakthrough debut single Another Love, If You Wanna Love Somebody is the first new material released since Odell’s 2016 second album Wrong Crowd, which debuted at #2 on the UK album chart.
Tom has also just shared details of his headline autumn UK & European tour which includes a night at London’s Eventim Apollo.
Odell’s debut album, 2013’s million-selling, #1 UK debut Long Way Down, featured his breakthrough single Another Love and was equally met with tremendous critical acclaim, earning him the highly prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year in 2014 and the Brits Critics’ Choice Award in 2013 at the age of 22. 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. Odell has amassed an impressive 1.8 million album sales and 10 million single sales worldwide.
