Tom Odell will release his second album 'Wrong Crowd' on June 10 via RCA Records (USA) and Columbia Records (UK). The album is the follow up to 2013's million selling, number 1 record 'Long Way Down,' a record that led to Tom being given the highly prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year.
'Wrong Crowd' consists of 11 new songs; a deluxe edition of the album featuring four extra tracks will also be available. The album was produced by Jim Abbiss, who has also produced records for artists including Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Adele.
The video for "Wrong Crowd," shot in South Africa, was directed by George Belfield (Arthur Beatrice, Richard Hawley, Kwabs) and features a brief section of another unreleased track from the album -- "Constellations."
Winner of the 2013 BRIT Awards Critics' Choice, Tom Odell released his debut album 'Long Way Down' in 2013. The album has sold over 1 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.
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."
