TOM GRENNAN ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM ‘LIGHTING MATCHES’ AND HEADLINE UK TOUR AND UNVEILS NEW SINGLE ‘ROYAL HIGHNESS’.
“Think a badass James Bay and you’re halfway there…” NME
“A cross between the deep, estuarial soul of Adele and the jaded experience of Wimbledon troubadour Jamie T” The Telegraph
“With Paolo Nutini-esque tones, Tom’s vocals are hypnotically beautiful and completely enchanting” Wonderland Magazine
“Grennan has an incredible voice and he’s an electrifying live performer: there’s something about his lyrics that really hit home as well, in the same way as Kate Tempest or Paolo Nutini” The Independent
“A sensitive, soulful songwriter” The Guardian
Tom Grennan will release his latest single ‘Royal Highness’ on 21st September on Insanity Records. The track, which is taken from his forthcoming album ‘Lighting Matches’, was premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World on Radio 1.
‘Royal Highness’ is the follow-up single to Grennan’s ‘Found What I’ve Been Looking For’, which is currently being used as the title music to Sky Sports’ Premier League coverage. The single featured on the Radio 1 (b-list), Virgin and Absolute Radio playlists and racked up almost five million streams. Grennan wears his indie-pop influences proudly on ‘Royal Highness’ to deliver another infectious anthem, with Tom’s soulful vocals taking centre stage.
It’s another taste of Tom’s forthcoming debut album ‘Lighting Matches’, which is set to be one of the most important albums of 2018.
Tom also features on Bugzy Malone‘s ‘Memory Lane’ single, which has been added to the Radio 1 playlist and features on Bugzy’s Top 5 album King Of The North.
With his autumn UK tour about to commence, we can announce Grennan’s next round of dates. It’s his biggest headline tour yet and includes a show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 20th March. Fans that preorder the album via Tom’s official store will get advance access to a pre-sale tickets until 9am on Friday, 29th September.
