When it comes to introducing London’s latest artist on-the-rise, Tom Speight would bring in his fans first. Driven by his ability to touch and uplift others, his artistry has quickly moulded into a love letter to those who listen to him — covering topics of love, loss and hope, with no personal topic out of reach. Exploring such complexities through evoking production and rich vocals, it is no surprise our volume was set to full upon the release of his latest single, “Let Go”.
Introducing the track best himself, Speight explains, “‘Let Go’ is like the follow-up phone call to my previous single ‘The One’. It follows the thread of getting over someone… It deals with the angst and heartbreak.” Filming a home-style video to accompany the tracks soaring symphonies, “Let Go” opens with a montage of fans singing along to his penned lyrics, joining together to lament the pain, mourning and redemption that comes with letting go of someone you love. Celebrating the togetherness that lies at the crux of his music, Speight allows us to remain united in our heartache and empowered by its mutuality.
Offering a glimpse into what is to come in his forthcoming album, Love & Light (due August 11th), the melodic storyteller adds, “I’ve touched on things in this record that I’ve never spoken about before, it’s without doubt my most personal to date.”
