Tom Grennan has today released his brand new single ‘Don’t Break The Heart’, along with the Deluxe Edition of his recent album, ‘Evering Road’. The new, deluxe edition of the UK number one album features five new tracks. Listen HERE.
‘Don’t Break The Heart’ is released amidst a busy time for Tom, after last weekend delivering captivating live performances at the Reading and Leeds Festival main stages and then heading to BBC Radio 1 for a four day takeover, curating and hosting the 'Future Sounds' slot.
On Saturday (Sep 4th) Tom Grennnan is set to participate in the Soccer Aid 2021 squad for UNICEF, the world’s biggest charity football match which takes place at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium where Tom will take to the field alongside the likes of Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney.
Speaking about his new single, 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’ and ‘Fade’. Previous single release ‘Little Bit of Love’, is re-worked with a live version recorded at the world famous Abbey Road studios. The original version has been streamed an astonishing 200 million times worldwide.
This year, Tom Grennan has had three chart topping singles with ‘Little Bit of Love’, ‘By Your Side’ and ‘Let’s Go Home Together’ with Ella Henderson.
Tom Grennan embarks on a sell out UK tour later this month, which includes a landmark performance at London’s 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace,
