Odell's current single, "Another Love," can be found on both his recently released U.S. EP, Songs From Another Love, and Long Way Down. Hailed by London's Sunday Times as "genuinely chilling," it debuted in the Top 10 in the U.K. and is a No. 1 hit in Belgium.Tom s videos for "Another Love" have racked up more than six million views combined. HBO tapped "Can't Pretend" for the promotional spots for the hit show "The Newsroom" and a live version of "Hold Me" can be heard in "Trench Kisses," a video from Burberry's Autumn/Winter 2013 advertising campaign, which features Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge.
Classically trained on piano from an early age, Odell grew up in Chichester, located in southeast England, and later moved to Brighton, attracted by its music scene. Eventually, Tom made his way to London, seeking a wider audience. His plan was not immediately successful Odell wound up playing sparsely attended shows, running out of money and sleeping in a car borrowed from his grandmother. A demo found its way to Lily Rose Cooper, who quickly signed him to her In The Name Of record label after seeing Odellperform live. With the label's blessing, Tom spent nine months holed up in a tiny east London room, outfitted with simply a piano and a desk, penning the songs for his debut. He recorded most of Long Way Down with his band at RAK Studios in London.
