Tom A. Smith is on an unstoppable roll with his new single, ‘Fading Away’, produced by Hugo White (The Maccabees). It’s a sonic masterpiece of passion and anthemic soundscapes, proving to be his most emotive release yet. ‘Fading Away’ brings back the heartfelt emotion that has become a hallmark of Smith’s music, delivering a broad, shimmering return filled with euphoric textures.
The accompanying video, featuring footage of a young Tom shot over a decade ago at the age of nine, adds a charming layer to the track. Filmed at Blast Beach in Durham, the same location used for scenes from Alien 3, the video enhances the song’s poignant lyrics and classic vibes.
Smith describes his creative process: “I wrote this song in a completely different way than I usually do, and everything just flowed so beautifully that the demo and everything was completed in under 5 hours. I love space and think the whole thing had a classic vibe.”
This release follows his third EP, ‘EP3‘, and an incredible stretch of live performances. From supporting renowned acts to headlining his largest tour to date, Tom A. Smith is rapidly making his mark on the music scene. ‘Fading Away’ is a shining testament to his talent and dedication, making it a must-listen for all.
