Tom Walker Releases New Single, ‘Better Half of Me’

Tom Walker has established himself as a major voice in music this year with his honesty and passion. His plaintive, acoustic driven new single ‘Better Half Of Me’, is as stunning and addictive as previous hits ‘Leave A Light On’ And ‘Just You And I’. All tracks feature on the special deluxe edition of his smash hit debut album ‘What A Time To Be Alive’, released November 8th on Relentless/Sony Music.

Written by Tom, along with UK songwriting powerhouse Joel Pott of Athlete, and Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, Jack Savoretti), and produced by Mark Ralph (Clean Bandit, Years & Years) and Cam Blackwood, ‘Better Half Of Me’ looks set to cement Tom Walker as one of the UK’s breakout global stars.

Tom is about to embark on a massive UK and Irish tour, kicking off at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. He played a run of UK & European festivals over the summer including Glastonbury, as well as touring the USA, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Russia.
