tom odell is set to release new album ‘wrong crowd’.
the songwriter went into the studio last year to work on the follow up to his million-selling debut album, 2013’s ‘long way down’. jim abiss sat in on production, with tom odell commenting: “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.” – clashmusic.com
