Tom Walker, whose debut album ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ has never seemed more prophetic, releases a brand new single, ‘Wait For You’, recorded during lockdown.
Combining touching, heartfelt lyrics with Tom’s signature vocal delivery, “Wait For You” explores the process of healing from past trauma and is a huge return for the acclaimed singer, who was the biggest selling UK signed artist last year and whose global streams have just passed two billion.
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 Walker 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 ‘Leave A Light On’ and is the perfect tonic for these challenging times.
