A beautifully honest yet euphoric pop-ballad, packed with raw emotion and an uplifting essence.
“This video is a representation of toxic masculinity and unconditional love, told via a story of two brothers. It was amazing to bring my song to life with one of my closest and long-time friends Keane Shaw, not only a close friend but someone who’s artistic vision I admire immensely.”
Originally written in the aftermath of heartbreak, Tom Grennan’s newest single takes on a different meaning as we all look ahead to 2021.
“’When I wrote Something Better’, it was a song about me smiling on the outside but dealing with a whirlwind of dark thoughts and distractions on the inside. Since Covid-19 and lockdown, the tables have turned! I’m smiling on the inside, and I’m constantly distracted with thoughts of the exciting, crazy and better future that is coming, and it’s just around the corner!”
Taken from the upcoming album ‘Evering Road’, due for release 5th March 2021 via Insanity Records.
I haven’t guessed as many as acts as I usually do with this poll this year (2016 seems to be the unpredictable year in more ways than one) – so it’s hard for me to figure exactly who will win this year at the moment.
Purely based on the immense quality of his work over the years I’d like Rag ‘n’ Bone Man to win.
Tom Grennan, Raye and Jorja Smith also deserve some love. Yet on a mainstream level, Maggie Rogers and Anderson Paak tick some boxes. Who knows though… Who knows..!
The shortlist works it’s way towards the end of the year.
