Tom Odell has released his stunning new single ‘Best Day Of My Life’ via independent label Mtheory/UROK. The single is accompanied by an equally beautiful official music video, created by director Manshen Lo (Sally Rooney), animated by Duncan Gist and produced by Nexus Studios.
Having fulfilled his major label record deal in 2021, Tom began to look ahead to a new era, a new way of working, and embarked on an independent new chapter of his acclaimed career that sees him reclaiming control and taking back the reins of his artistry.
‘Best Day Of My Life’ marks the first single of that new chapter. Perhaps one of the most poignant songs he’s ever written, the single tackles the emotional peaks and troughs of being alive and experiencing moments of euphoria following bouts of sadness. His newfound sense of freedom and clarity is palpable in the lyrics as Tom sings, “I think today is the best day of my life / F**k thinking about the future all the time / If I’m alone, if I’m alone then I don’t mind.”
The single’s release follows an overwhelming response to Tom teasing the track to his ever-growing and dedicated legion of fans on social media, where he regularly tears down the artist-fan barrier to interact with his audience, host Zoom events, and TikTok duets where his single Another Love became a viral phenomenon years after its release.
The single also received a rapturous response during the UK leg of Tom’s world tour last month. The mammoth tour kicked off in February with 15 shows across the UK including a sold out show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. Alongside a colossal number of headline shows across the world, Tom is also due to appear at festivals in the summer including A Day In The Park and Towersey Festival this Summer.
