Earlier this year, Tom released his fifth studio album, Best Day Of My Life. Praised by critics upon release, and hailed as “a minimalist masterpiece”, the focus was taken off of commercial expectations around his songwriting, creating an environment where listeners can sit with the music and breathe. The result is a work of minimalist beauty, comprising just Tom’s voice, a piano, and the occasional creak of a stool, to form what is not just Tom’s rawest and most honest album to date with its profound songwriting and masterful piano, but a body of work of which Tom is immensely proud.
His latest release from the album is “Butterflies”, a tender, endearing track featuring Norwegian singer-songwriter AURORA. “Butterflies” is a dedication to pure love and the tender lyrical declaration is complimented by the elegant blend of their voices, highlighting their natural synergy.
Tom’s hit single “Another Love” continues to reach stratospheric heights, being recently certified RIAA Platinum by surpassing 1 billion Spotify streams in 2022, an incredible milestone achieved by just 200 artists (The track currently has well over 1.5 billion streams, with an increase of half a billion streams in the past 6 months). The track recently entered the Top 10 in the UK Official Singles Chart after weeks of featuring in the Top 20. The single had a phenomenal resurgence this year with the sound often being used in videos covering the crisis in Ukraine. Subsequently, Tom performed the single at ITV’s Concert For Ukraine in April that raised over £13.4m (over $15 million), performing it at the train station in Bucharest to raise awareness and money for Ukrainian refugees. Tom joined forces with GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Tiësto for a special remix of the track, with all proceeds going to the charity, Choose Love.
Additionally, Tom featured in Billboard’s Global 200 Artists of 2022 ahead of Rosalia, Charlie Puth and Arctic Monkeys and is one of the top 15 British artists worldwide across streaming platforms. He is also currently sitting at No. 34 in the Global Digital Artist rankings. His continued creative development and dedication to his audience is propelling him forward at an exponential rate, ensuring 2023 will be another exciting year.
