Today March 1 sees the release of Tom Walker’s debut album, ‘What A Time To Be Alive’. The title could well be a description of what’s been going on in Tom’s head lately: he won the BRIT Award for British Breakthrough Act, and was nominated for his single, ‘Leave A Light On’. That track entered straight into the UK Official Top 40 songs of 2018, and also hit the #1 spot on iTunes in 20 countries, and sold Platinum in 10.
2018 also saw Walker nab several other awards, including Sync Artist of the Year at the Music Week Sync Awards as well as the notable ASCAP Vanguard Award – previous recipients include Dua Lipa, Jess Glynn and Calvin Harris.
The ten track album, ‘What A Time To Be Alive’, features previous releases ‘Angels’, ‘Leave A Light On’, and the currently BBC Radio 1 A-listed track, ‘Just You And I’ – as well as a great collaboration – previously unheard – with Zara Larsson, on ‘Now You’re Gone’.
Scottish-born and Manchester-raised, Tom Walker has carved for himself a success story to be proud of. With ‘What A Time To Be Alive’, he’s sure to mark even more milestones in this and the coming years. What a time to be alive, indeed.
Tom is about to set off on his UK and European tour starting tomorrow. Find tickets and further information here.
