Tom Odell Releases Brand New Single/Video “Half As Good As You” Feat. Alice Merton Today – New Album “Jubilee Road” Out 10.26 via RCA

Today, Tom Odell releases the video for his brand new single “Half as Good as You,” featuring the vocals of rising star Alice Merton. “Half As Good As You” is featured on Odell’s forthcoming third studio album Jubilee Road, set for release October 26 via RCA Records. Watch it HERE.

Although the album title may be a fictional street name, Jubilee Road may well be Odell’s most honest and personal album, thus far. Packed with his signature melodies and ebullient performances, Jubilee Road documents real life stories of the time Tom spent living in a house in East London.  While only 27 years old, Jubilee Road may well be a career-defining record for Odell, which sees the multi-talented young artist take full control of his music, not only writing, singing, and vamping up his vibrant piano style on all ten songs, but also self-producing them.

From the opening title track Jubilee Road,” Tom sings about the neighborhood characters, from the whiskey-drinking gamblers in the local betting shop in “Queen of Diamonds,” to the bittersweet celebration of Wedding Day.” He is also joined by Alice Merton on stand-out track “Half As Good As You” out now. Another highlight is lead single “If You Wanna Love Somebody”  which he performed on on The Graham Norton Show  release day (watch it HERE and watch official video HERE). “If You Wanna Love Somebody” is a passionate, expertly-crafted love song about a broken relationship, seeing him once again revisit the theme of his breakthrough debut single “Another Love.”  Jubilee Road is his third studio album that follows his 2016 release Wrong Crowdwhich debuted at #2 on the UK album chart.

 Speaking about the album Tom says:

“I wrote this album in a house on a quiet terraced street in East London. The lyrics are inspired by the lives of the friends I made whilst living there. I recorded most the songs in the living room of the house and if I listen back closely, I can still hear the sound of the old man’s television shows coming through the walls from next door, the kids from the house opposite playing football in the street below and the sound of my girlfriend’s footsteps on the wooden floorboards above. I don’t live there anymore, my life has changed somewhat, but I will always remember the time fondly and I hope you enjoy listening to the album as much as I did making it”.
