On July 13, U.K. singer-songwriter Tom Odell released a powerful acoustic version of his single "If You Wanna Love Somebody," via RCA Records.
"If You Wanna Love Somebody" is a track and lead single featured on his forthcoming studio album Jubilee Road, which will be released on October 12 via RCA Records.
"You should look at your reflection, if you wanna see a lie, you're heading in the right direction, if you wanna pick a side," Odell sings in the opening verse.
There is a rawness and honesty to Odell's lyrics on "If You Wanna Love Somebody," and his vocals are quite expressive, as he accompanies himself on piano at the Kenton Pub. He sings about a failing romance, where the subject matter is very relatable for his fans and listening audience.
"If You Wanna Love Somebody" is available on iTunes, and on Spotify.

Odell deserves to be the next Sam Smith in the contemporary pop music scene. Well done. "If You Wanna Love Somebody" garners an A rating.
