The EP I’m releasing for Record Store Day on Saturday is called ‘The Daytrotter Recordings’.

When I found out I had the opportunity to release something for Record Store Day I was excited. Just the chance to get back in the recording studio seemed very appealing. I wanted to do something different. The thing I love about Record Store Day is that the releases are completely unique. It’s one of the few moments when you can find and own something that won’t be available anywhere else. It becomes more personal. It becomes more special. 

 

I decided I wanted to release an EP that could emulate some of the stuff I’ve been doing on the road with my band. I wanted it to sound live. So we recorded a set of some of my favourite songs, and we recorded them straight to tape. We only had a couple of hours, and a couple of reels of the stuff, but that made it all the more compelling. 

 

Hope you enjoy, Tom 

 

Track listing for ‘The Daytrotter Recordings’

I have some news… Long Way Down is going to be released in the US this June. Things are going well over there and everyone who came to see me at SXSW was amazing. In Europe, Another Love has been in the top 10 in a few countries which is just amazing so we’re going to put out the record across Europe too. Really happy about it all and thank you to everyone who’s helped me get to this point.

The flipside of all this is that the UK release of Long Way Down needs to go back to June so that all the releases dates across the world are the same. These days having different release dates would mean the album may end up getting leaked which is not fair on all of you who paid for it. All your pre-orders are still valid of course and I’m really sorry to keep you waiting longer. Hope you understand it’s for the right reasons, I’m sorry, but to keep you going until then here’s a free download of the Long Way Down demo. Thanks for listening and for the support.

Love, Tom x
