TOM WALKER “WAIT FOR YOU & WAIT FOR YOU (STEVE VOID REMIX)”
Tom Walker, whose debut album WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE has never seemed more prophetic, today releases a brand new single, ‘Wait For You’, recorded during lockdown, out now through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
There’s a sense of urgency in this deeply personal new track that resonates strongly during this current climate. Written by Tom, Joel Pott (George Ezra, London Grammar, Mabel) and Cam Blackwood (George Ezra), produced by Cam Blackwood and mixed by Spike Stent, Tom’s voice has never sounded better.
“This song is about a mate of mine who went through a life changing event as a teenager,” Tom explains. “It took a long time for him to heal and aspects of what happened have taken a toll on his life. Fast forward to now and he’s one of the most outgoing, positive people you could ever meet.
“It got me thinking that we can all go through tough times; it’s what you choose to do after that’s important. If something positive can come out of it, that’s a really special thing.”
The deeply personal narrative and emotion is reminiscent of much of Tom’s canon of hits especially his triple platinum ARIA accredited single ‘Leave A Light On’ and is the perfect tonic for these challenging times.
To celebrate the release of this new single, Thursday June 11th saw Tom undertake a Zoom World Tour, playing six countries in twelve hours, starting with Australia. He performed intimate shows to thirty lucky fans in six different time zones, starting at 7pm last night with Australia, before moving on to France, Italy, Germany, the US and finishing up in the UK when ‘Wait For You’ was officially released.
Tom, whose global streams have just passed two billion, was the biggest selling UK signed artist last year.
