Tom Chaplin is blessed with one of the most recognisable singing voices in the country.
As lead singer with Keane the frontman sold countless records, becoming a household name with those soft, tender vocals.
Turning solo, new album 'The Wave' arrives on October 14th, a mature, rounded document, but also one that finds Tom deftly challenging himself.
Lead single 'Quicksand' went down a storm with fans, while the production from Matt Hales afforded the songwriting plenty of space to breath.
With intimate tour dates incoming, Clash is able to premiere something rather special from Tom Chaplin.
'Still Waiting' has that soft, aching melancholy that Keane long since made their own, but Tom eases this songwriting brand into fresh arenas.
Given a tender, acoustic re-working, this simple, unadorned performance is the work of a vocalist doing what they do best.
Tune in now.
