"Long Way Down" by Tom Odell on iTunes

13 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

After a BRIT Critics’ Choice Award and a handful of well-received singles, Tom Odell released his first full-length record, Long Way Down—a dazzling showcase of the young singer/songwriter’s musical talent that debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. album chart. With a mix of stirring vocals and impassioned piano playing, the 22-year-old Odell digs deeply into his tortuous relationships, conveying both early euphoria (“Grow Old With Me”) and inevitable heartbreak (“Supposed To Be”) with disarming honesty. As mesmerizing as he is on haunted tracks like “Another Love”—his regret boiling to a furious crescendo he can barely contain—songs like “Till I Lost” show he can also belt out a sweeping chorus with a flair worthy of Coldplay’s Chris Martin. Yet even at its most quiet and introspective, Odell’s voice is one you can’t turn away from.

About Tom Odell

Born in the West Sussex town of Chichester, British singer/songwriter Tom Odell spent his formative years studying at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music. Raised on a steady diet of Elton John, Leonard Cohen, and Bob Dylan, Odell's songs are emotional, raw, and hushed affairs that have drawn comparisons to Jeff Buckley. In 2012, after landing a record deal with Columbia Records, the then-21-year-old released his debut EP, Songs from Another Love, made his television debut on Later... with Jools Holland, and was nominated for and won in the Critics' Choice category of that year's BRIT Awards. He released his first full-length studio album, Long Way Down, in 2013. The platinum-selling album was a huge success, having gone straight in at number one on the U.K. charts, and Odell spent much of the following couple of years touring the material relentlessly, supporting huge names such as Elton John, Billy Joel, and the Rolling Stones along the way. Odell soon sought refuge from the limelight, and found it in the shape of a small apartment in New York's East Village. It was here that he found the time to begin working on his follow-up, 2016's Wrong Crowd. After a European tour in 2014, and after scooping an Ivor Novello award for Songwriter of the Year, Odell again relocated, this time to Los Angeles. Here the album began to take shape with the help of producer Jim Abbiss, best known for his work with Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, and Adele, among others. Ever the avid film buff, Wrong Crowd was accompanied by a collection of films that followed the narrative of the album. Scripted by Odell and with the help of director George Belfield, the films explored themes of isolation and innocence, having drawn inspiration from the greats such as Wenders, Malick, and Fellini during his time spent under the radar in New York. ~ James Christopher Monger
