Tom Odell Olympia Theatre 1 November 2016

Tom Odell has announced his highly anticipated Irish return with a headline show at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on 1 November 2016.

New album Wrong Crowd is out on 10 June.

Tom Odell will release his second album Wrong Crowd on 10 June via Columbia Records. The album is the follow-up to 2013’s million selling, number 1 record Long Way Down, a record that led to Tom being given the highly prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year.

Speaking of the new album, Tom said:

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.

The album was produced by Jim Abbiss, who has also produced records for artists including Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Adele.

The video for ‘Wrong Crowd’, shot in South Africa, was directed by George Belfield (Arthur Beatrice, Richard Hawley, Kwabs) and features a brief section of another unreleased track from the album – ‘Constellations’.

Tickets priced €25.40 inclusive of booking fee go on sale at 9am this Friday, 27 May.
