Tom Grennan Releases New Album 'What Ifs & Maybes' + Set To Make His Glastonbury Debut
By Stevie Connor.
The release of What Ifs & Maybes follows the tour of the same name that recently saw Tom Grennan perform his first headline arena shows in the UK, including London’s iconic O2 arena, and shows across Europe, selling over 180,000 tickets. The tour also saw Tom praised for his efforts to keep ticket prices low and accessible for all fans – dismissing all VIP and platinum ticket options across the tour.
Recently, Tom took his electric live show to dominate stages at Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Capital’s Summertime Ball. Tom is also set to make his Glastonbury debut this year on The Other Stage at 2:15 – 3:15pm on Saturday.
Last weekend, Tom took part in Soccer Aid 2023. The acclaimed charity event saw him not just flex his football skills, but in true Tom Grennan style, ignore the rest at half and instead returned to the pitch for an exhilarating performance of his latest single ‘HERE’. He also earned ‘Player Of The Match’ for the second year in a row.
The album features singles released so far including the euphoric ‘Remind Me’, the first single to be taken from the new album and a bold statement of intent for Tom and the gospel-inspired single ‘Here’, symbolising a story of solidarity in trying times, and a crucial message of togetherness. Elsewhere, the exuberant ‘All These Nights’ with its arena-sized bounce of a chorus narrates themes of love and gratitude, and his latest party-starting single ‘How Does It Feel?’, that opens the album with a bang, is written on the excitement of the chance to rebuild.
The album follows the success of Tom’s breakthrough UK #1 and BRIT-certified GOLD album ‘Evering Road’, which included ‘Little Bit Of Love’ and ‘By Your Side’ — both of which scored in the Top Three most played songs of 2021 and PLATINUM certification in Canada. Tom already counts four UK Top 10 singles to his name. And a hat-trick of his 2022 songs, ‘Remind Me’, ‘Not Over Yet’ with KSI and ‘Lionheart (Fearless)’ with Joel Corry, have all been named in The Biggest Songs of 2022 by The Official Big Top 40.
Tom was recently nominated for the 2023 BRIT Award for Alternative Rock/Rock Act, marking his third consecutive BRIT nomination following Song of the Year with Mastercard for his international smash hit ‘Little Bit Of Love’, and Alternative/Rock Act, at the 2022 ceremony.
