Tom Speight Explores Paris In The Video For New Single Want You

Tuesday, 11 September 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Tom Speight has released a new single.

Want You is the first to be shared from his upcoming album, which is expected to arrive next spring. It sees the singer-songwriter delivering uplifting indie-pop that could easily soundtrack a summer rom-com. He said:

"I started recording my album in March and managed to record about half of it.. However, in April I was taken ill with my Crohn's disease and ended up being in hospital for 2 months until I was in remission..10 days later I started recording and putting the finishing touches to Want You. I wanted to finish this first because it felt like the most positive song on the album and after a tough spell I wanted to put a positive edge on things! I recorded it with Chris Bond (Ben Howard) my long-term collaborator in Devon. It carries on what we've built so far, a mixture between folk indie pop! Influenced by The Shins & War on Drugs. It's the next stage in my progression as an artist.'' 

Head below to watch the track's video, which was shot in Paris with a Super 8 camera and directed by Jodie Canwell.

Speight has lined up a trio of UK shows in October. Tickets are on sale now.

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.

But do Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock know that Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock are friends? “Hey,” Farren says from the stage at Bristol’s Exchange. “If you’re excited for Jeff Rosenstock, let me hear you say...‘CHRIS FARREN!’” When Rosenstock’s guitar packs up mid-set, his attempts to borrow Farren’s are met with silence until a member of his band suggests Tweeting him. Yeah, that’d probably do it, Jeff nods.
Out Of The Shade: Doyle Bramhall II Steps Into The Limelight
Thu 11 Oct 2018
There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For
Wed 10 Oct 2018
Photo: Lera Pentelute Earlier this summer, three like-minded indie-rock musicians began teasing their fans. Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
