“Tom is desperate not to let anyone down, however we have taken the precautionary decision to postpone the Washington show tomorrow to a later date, with details to follow.
d”We will update on future shows should changes need to be mate. We wish to thank Tom’s incredible US fans for their support and understanding.”
Speaking about the track, he said: “I wanted to write a song that reminded me of a moment in my life where I realised I had given up something that was really making a difference in my life – in a good way.
“It’s about reconnecting. It’s that feeling when you’re at the top of the rollercoaster and you’re like: this is the best feeling”.
He also went on to explain that he’s at work now in the studio on his next album. “I have a new story to tell,” Grennan added. “I’m on a run, I’m in sixth gear.”
Last year, Grennan scored his first UK Number One album with his second studio album, ‘Evering Road’.
The Bedford singer-songwriter’s album debuted at the top spot with over 17,000 chart sales – 73 per cent of which were physical copies, including CD, vinyl and cassette.
