Tom Grennan is back with a brand new single ‘Don’t Break The Heart’, released today alongside ‘Evering Road Deluxe’, a special extended version of Tom’s UK Number #1 chart topping album featuring five new tracks.
As Tom prepares for a huge sold-out headline tour that’s seen over 40,000 ticket sales across the UK, including London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace, ‘Don’t Break The Heart’ arrives amidst a volley of celebratory activity. Following a landmark performance on the Reading and Leeds Festival Mainstages, Tom headed straight into the booth at BBC Radio 1 for a four day takeover hosting and curating the ‘Future Sounds’ slot.
Looking to the weekend, Tom is set to star in the Soccer Aid 2021 squad for UNICEF, the world’s biggest charity football match taking place this September 4th at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium where Tom will take to the field alongside the likes of Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney.
Following the release of Tom’s BRITcertified Silver single ‘By Your Side’ with GRAMMY-winning artist and producer Calvin Harris, new single ‘Don’t Break The Heart’ is a euphoric and vibrant song inspired by loss, arriving as yet another testament to Tom’s position as pop’s latest prodigy.
Speaking about the track, Tom Grennan said:
“Recently I received the tragic news of a friend’s mum’s passing. It hit me hard watching him comprehend what had happened, trying to compute the madness and sadness of his new world now that his mum whom he loved so dearly had passed. It triggered memories for me of the loss of my cousin and best friend Alan when I was just a teenager, it broke so many of us. The song unravelled from me quite quickly. It was cathartic on many levels, thoughts of loss and heartbreak, dealing with the grief of death, or the breakdown of a relationship or friendship. These are all things that seem to have dominated my life in recent years, but sadly never get any easier to navigate. I’m grateful that the passing of time allows us to look back and remember the good times.”
‘Evering Road Deluxe’ features ‘Don’t Break The Heart’ and ’By Your Side’, as well as new tracks ‘People Always Meant To Be’, ‘Fade’, and an orchestral version of Tom’s BRIT GOLD certified Top 10 single ‘Little Bit of Love’, recorded live from Abbey Road (the single itself has now been streamed 200 million times worldwide).
As one of the top 200 most streamed artists in the world, Tom Grennan now counts three chart topping singles in 2021 alone with ‘Little Bit of Love’, ‘By Your Side’ and the Number One Trending Song ‘Let’s Go Home Together’ with Ella Henderson.
Now surpassing 250m global streams, Tom’s acclaimed UK Number One album ‘Evering Road’ has seen him recognised as “one of the country’s bright young musical talents” by British GQ, simply “epic” by the NME and “a catchy, dance-adjacent mea culpa that will score with fans” by ES Magazine. Elsewhere, Music Week applauded “an epic breakup lament”, CLASH saw “a soulful piece of introspection”, and Classic Pop championed “layers of complexity”.
Following the epic return to the stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals, Tom Grennan will make his highly anticipated return to the headline stage with an entirely sold out tour across the UK, including a landmark performance at London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace. Full dates are below.
