Song Of The Day: "If You Wanna Love Somebody" by Tom Odell

Hey guys!

Alright, post number two of the busiest New Music Friday we've had in a while.

Not sure what happened, but pretty much every brilliant artist and their grandmas are throwing new music at us today and we're just gonna roll with it.

When Tom Odell's new track popped up on our screen, we immediately started writing this feature.
Tom's music has been on our playlist for about five years now.
(Remember when "Another Love" was released and we all lost our minds over his voice?)

So, let's get to know the new song!

- Song Of The Day -
"If You Wanna Love Somebody" by Tom Odell

Tom Odell is a singer/songwriter/piano man originally from Chichester, UK, now based in London.
His sound plays with elements of Rock, Pop and slight bits of Soul

The young musician started playing the piano at an early age, then began writing and performing himself.
It was singer Lily Allen who signed Tom to her label and soon the world had the pleasure of watching the talented piano man play his way to the top.

Being the winner of the Brits Critic's Choice in 2013 set the tone for a successful debut album release.
Tom's "Long Way Down" built him a loyal and non-stop growing fanbase all over the world.

After two years of writing and recording, he released his second album "Wrong Crowd" in June 2016.

And now, after touring the world and taking a little break, Tom is back with his brand new single "If You Wanna Love Somebody".

The song greets you with a piano intro that could remind fans of his older material, the "Long Way Down" vibes are pretty prominent and stay throughout the song.
The "Wrong Crowd" vibes meet you in the second verse and allow the song to become a more modern track while still having a very timeless feeling to it.

Tom's voice newer disappoints and is as expressive as ever. The warmth in his voice delivers the notes with such conviction and honesty.

One of many highlights of the song are the backing vocals; the choir/multi-layered vocals fit right into the mood of the song and carry the depth perfectly.

It's so much fun to see that no matter how much he evolves as an artist and performer, he's always staying true to the piano man roots.
