Tom Grennan drops a smooth gem in the form of new one ‘Oh Please’

Tom Grennan has dipped into the smooth-zone with his latest single ‘Oh Please’

Full of more swoons than a swoon-factory (we’re sure it exists okay?!), it’s another tantalising taste from Mr Grennan’s anticipated second album after comeback track ‘This Is The Place’ - with the album set for release later this year.

Speaking about the track, Tom says: “When writing ‘Oh Please’ I was listening to a lot of Curtis Mayfield, Nas, Kendrick, and of course Amy Winehouse, and I wanted to channel this through the song. The opening transports me back to visiting America, crossing the Brooklyn bridge for the first time and seeing Manhattan. It really hit me at that moment that anything was possible, and I saw things clearer than ever before. I felt euphoric and excited for the future, a chapter closed and a beautiful new beginning ahead. It changed my mindset towards relationships, to focus my energy on learning from them rather than going into a darker, angry place. ‘Oh Please’ is about learning from relationships. It’s about staying strong and making the right decisions with respect and grace.”

Currently self-isolating, Tom Grennan will play as a part of Homeschool Festival this May - check out all the details on that right here
