Tom Williams - Follow The Leader [LP]
Release Date: 30 Jul 2021
Celebrating 10 years since his first album, Tom Williams releases his most eclectic project to date. ‘Follow The Leader’ represents a departure from his previous output, and is comprised of a collection of songs which comment on pre- and post-lockdown life, providing beautifully crafted snapshots of modern Britain.
Having released six studio albums to date, Tom Williams has built a passionate fanbase of discerning music lovers since his first album, Tom Williams & The Boat’s ‘Too Slow’ ten years ago.
His 2017 album ‘All Change’ was voted by BBC 6 Music Recommends as one of their Top Ten Albums Of The Year, and his last album 2019’s ‘What Did You Want To Be?’ which was produced by Tim Rice-Oxley, was described by The Guardian as “surging, vintage pop-rock” and championed extensively by Jo Whiley at BBC Radio 2, Steve Lamacq and Lauren Laverne at BBC 6 Music, Huw Stephens at Radio 1, Q Magazine and Clash. ‘Follow The Leader’ signifies a departure from Williams’ previous output.
Self-produced, the album boasts rich orchestral sounds and full band performances, mixed with claustrophobic drum machines, synthesizers and deep sub bass sounds.
