Ivor Novello-winning songwriting sensation and master of the ivories, Tom Odell is at the very top of his game. With multiple awards and 1.8 million sales under his belt, his debut album, Long Way Down, topped the charts in the UK, on the back of breakthrough smash, Another Love, and by late 2014 he was in the Top Ten again with a cover of The Beatles’ Real Love.
Still only 27, he returns with Jubilee Road – a career-defining record. It 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, providing horn arrangements and layering up his trademark backing choir largely out of multi-tracks of his own voice. Packed with grandstanding melodies and scintillating performances, it is, its auteur proudly declares, his bravest outing so far, and also his most honest and personal. It features ten songs each in their own way destined for classic status. Leading the charge, the terrifically catchy, gospel-soaked ‘If You Wanna Love Somebody’ may just be his highlight so far.
