Lightning 100 debuts “Another Love” by Tom Odell. British singer-songwriter. He released his debut extended play, Songs from Another Love, in 2012 and won the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award in early 2013. His debut studio album, Long Way Down, was issued on 24 June 2013.
Odell is signed to In the Name Of, an imprint of Columbia Records. He was discovered by the label head Lily Allen, who remarked that “his energy onstage reminded me of David Bowie“. He was given an album advance: “I went out and bought an old Mini Cooper for cash. Then three weeks later I got back from a show in Scotland and the car was gone. So if you see a racing-green classic Mini Cooper, it’s mine”. He released his debut extended play, Songs from Another Love, in October 2012. He made his television debut in November 2012 as a performer on Later… with Jools Holland; the show’s producer Alison Howe later described it as “a classic Later debut”. Odell was announced as one of fifteen nominees for the BBC Sound of 2013 poll in January 2013. Also that month, his single “Another Love” was used by the BBC to advertise their 2013 schedule. Odell’s music has been used in numerous Burberry fashion runway shows. Odell was named the BRITs‘ Critics’ Choice Award winner, previously won by artists including Adele and Florence and the Machine, and was interviewed alongside previous winner Emeli Sandé during the television ceremony in February 2013.
