Today, London-based singer-songwriter Tom Speight releases new single “The One,” via Nettwerk. “The One” is a single filled with a gut-wrenching heartache that will leave you at the edge of your seat.

Listen here.

Injected with an eruption of shimmering operatic strings and irresistible melodies, “The One” is a resilient lead single that overflows with an alluring mystique. Despite being built around the thematic tone of a sombre, wistful-longing, the energy in Tom’s work still very much remains. Throughout these past six years, we have watched Tom grow and create a name for himself within the world of intimate acoustic anthems. Where his second album took a much bolder and poppier approach, it only makes sense to branch out further into this new soundscape. Watch the official video here and below:

With two standout albums already under his belt, nods that were once directed towards the likes of Damien Rice and Stereophonics are now diverging towards Dermot KennedyEd Sheeran, and Rag’n’Bone Man.
