REVIEW: Tom Odell - Magnetised incl remixes out on Columbia / Sony Music

Tom Odell sees massive dance remixes by Secondcity, Tube & Berger and Kat Krazy on the massive new single "Magnetized".

Tom Odell releases ‘Magnetised’, the first single from his forthcoming album ‘Wrong Crowd’ out on June 10 via Columbia Records.

The rousing new single features a driving drumbeat and soaring chorus, showcasing the progression of Tom’s sound on his new album, whilst still channeling the raw emotion and honesty his songwriting is known for. The video, filmed in South Africa, is a continuation of the ‘Wrong Crowd’ video that was released earlier this month.

The highly anticipated new album ‘Wrong Crowd’, available to pre-order now, is the follow up to 2013’s million selling, number 1 record “Long Way Down”, a record that led to Tom being given the highly prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year.

 [item value="10"]Tom Odell - Magnetised[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Magnetised is one of those songs that is perfect for club remixes as it has certain darkness and weirdness that the massive remixes manage to expose even more with focus point of course Tom and his incredible skills in singing and song writing. Secondcity is dark driving emotional minimal version that brings to the forefront the voice with some piano chords here and there. Kat Krazy provide the euphoric future house ready for Ibiza style remix that you know that will explode on the dancefloor. The beloved German duo Tube & Berger deliver an excellent deep house version with electronic melodies, xylophone melodies and breakdown with full orchestral parts that will catch your audience by surprise and magnetise them on the dancefloor. These remixes fit perfectly the eclectic sound of Tom Odell. #PureGold Love iT [/content]
