Dowsed in breathtaking tonality, ‘Tomorrow’ is one of the most heartfelt and delicate tracks to come from Tom in the last few years.

Tom acknowledges the uncertain nature of the future, longing for a desire to escape from limitations and find a new sense of freedom.
Speaking ahead of its arrival, Tom reveals that, “‘Tomorrow’ is a special song for me. It was inspired by several things… personally, for me, it’s about my health! The hope things will get better.”
