After becoming 2019’s biggest selling UK-signed artist, with a number one debut album, an international hit single in Leave A Light On, three million worldwide album sales and over four billion global streams in tow, Tom Walker makes his hard-fought return with brand new studio record, I Am, out May 31st, 2024.

Where previously, Tom became known for powerful accounts of other people’s stories, including a friend’s battle with drugs (Leave A Light On), and articulating his own relatable feelings for his now wife (Just You & I); he now finds himself writing about his own personal struggles and anxieties, creative challenges, sadness and moments of despair. It is a sometimes visceral account of who Tom Walker is in 2024, hence the title: I Am.

“I Am is a culmination of me trying to figure out who I am for the last four years.” explains Tom. “This record is a snapshot of what’s been going on in my life, and what’s been happening around me – what’s made me happy or sad, ecstatic or miserable.”

The first taste of new music came with the rallying cry comeback single Burn, which took a swipe at his record label over urgent, hammering beats. There is now his second offering Freaking Out, a huge song nailed with a dream team of producers Fraser T. Smith (Adele, Stormzy) and Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers). It’s a personal cry for help which tackles social anxiety and addresses the re-learning of how to be himself and the creative artist forcibly stalled by Covid.

After writing, and binning, a plethora of new tracks, an exhausted Tom subsequently headed out to Los Angeles to write with the McDonough brothers, Toby Gadd, Ryan Daly and Castle, whose credits between them include Beyonce, Joji, Khalid, Mimi Webb and John Legend. The trip reignited the excitement and love of trying brand new things.

The results speak for themselves. As well as Freaking Out and Burn, there’s Head Underwater, a soulful rhythmic pop anthem with a soaring vocal that, again, sounds like a whole new Walker.

Looking ahead, as Tom succinctly puts it; “I will die for these songs. It’s the first time in a long time I’ve felt like that. You’ve got to ignore what everyone else wants from you, and you’ve got to back yourself.”

And with that, welcome to the exciting, limitless next phase of Tom Walker. A man who knows where he’s headed: to arena-scale songs with molecular-level heart.
