Grammy-nominated Tom Tripp explores the depths of an abusive relationship on melodic new single ‘Glow’. Out now, via Polydor Records, the self-produced track puts Tripp’s ability to write emotive narratives center-stage; the slow-burning R&B tinged arrangement allows his vocal to fill the space, a slight departure from his previous offerings. It is the second song to be taken from Tripp’s upcoming project, the last incarnation of which was scrapped and re-written. If ‘Glow’ is anything to go by, we’re in for a wonderfully personal, well crafted EP.
“My inner soul was like, ‘Nah, you don’t like this, I thought, ‘Let’s just reset, let me have a fresh start and look again at what I want to do with music, and what I want people to know about me. My favourite part of being an artist is getting out exactly what I’m going through in my head on a microphone, I’ve clearly got my thoughts on track, on record for the world to hear and people can relate to that how they want. It’s a release for me. It’s kind of selfish actually; it’s not for you, you can enjoy it, but this is for me.” – Tom Tripp on the cathartic process of making his new EP ‘FLAG’
