(New York- April 27, 2016) Tom Odell today releases new track “Constellations” from his new album WRONG CROWD due out on June 10 via RCA Records. Click here to listen to “Constellations.” Tom Odell said of the song, “’I’m so excited to release ‘Constellations’ today, ahead of my new album Wrong Crowd. It is a ballad, recorded in Wales, and it’s the backbone of the album. It’s a ray of light in a seemingly dark and toxic relationship.”
Fans who pre-order WRONG CROWD will receive “Constellations,” the album’s first single “Magnetised,” and title track “Wrong Crowd” instantly. The videos for “Magnetised” and the album’s title track, released earlier this month, were filmed in South Africa and directed by George Belfield (Arthur Beatrice, Richard Hawley, Kwabs), and the storyline for the “Magnetised” video is a continuation of the “Wrong Crowd” video which also includes a portion of the song “Constellations” available today.
Tom is in the midst of the European run of his intimate concert dates. Upcoming US shows include May 4th at New York’s Mercury Lounge and May 6th at Los Angeles’ Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever. The UK Telegraph wrote of his London show that Odell was “electrifying…with a big, bold, bravura performance … a whole layer of charismatic rock swagger…Odell might be the missing link between showboating Seventies Elton and the epic emotionalism of Coldplay. In a set where new songs were greeted just as rapturously as old favourites, Odell did more than enough to suggest …his (Brit) Critics Choice Award might not be his last.”
WRONG CROWD, the album, is available for pre-order now, and is the follow up his 2013’s million selling, #1 UK debuting album Long Way Down. Long Way Down, his debut album was met with tremendous critical reaction and earned him the highly prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year and the Brits Critics’ Choice Award.
WRONG CROWD consists of 11 songs and 4 bonus tracks. Fans who pre-order the album will receive the new track “Constellations” available today, the single “Magnetized,” and title track “Wrong Crowd” instantly.

The album was co-produced by Tom Odell and Jim Abbiss, who has also produced records for artists including Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, and Adele.
WRONG CROWD is the follow-up album to Tom Odell’s 2013 million selling #1 UK debuting album Long Way Down, a campaign which saw Tom Odell accomplish many milestones: winning the Brits Critics’ Choice Award in 2013 at the age of 22 with his debut album, receiving the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year in 2014, being nominated for two more Brit awards in 2014 for Best Male and Best Newcomer, and touring extensively across the world and opening for Billy Joel on several U.S. dates. Tom garnered over 200 million cumulative views on YouTube, and accumulated 8 Gold and 2 Platinum certifications around the world. His singles “Another Love” and “Real Love” both hit the UK Top 10, with the latter, a cover of a track by The Beatles – used for the UK John Lewis’ Christmas TV 2014 ad campaign.
Tom said of the new album, “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.”
