The Bedford singer continues to tease the eagerly anticipated follow up to his 2018 debut album Lighting Matches as he offers its second soulful single Oh Please. Following the release of This Is The Place earlier in the year, the track is Tom Grennan’s attempt to self reflect on his past relationships as he explains:

‘Oh Please’ is about learning from relationships. It’s about staying strong and making the right decisions with respect and grace.

Inspired by the grooves of Amy Winehouse, Kendrick Lamar, Curtis Mayfield and Nas, the single offers it all from the Tom Grennan formula – the soaring vocals, the striking melancholic violin symphonies, the subtle heavenly harmonies, the catchy jazzy guitar work are just an example of it.

Speaking on the inspiration behind Oh Please, Tom says:

When writing ‘Oh Please’ I was listening to a lot of Curtis Mayfield, Nas, Kendrick, and of course Amy Winehouse, and I wanted to channel this through the song. The opening transports me back to visiting America, crossing the Brooklyn bridge for the first time and seeing Manhattan. It really hit me at that moment that anything was possible, and I saw things clearer than ever before. I felt euphoric and excited for the future, a chapter closed and a beautiful new beginning ahead. It changed my mindset towards relationships, to focus my energy on learning from them rather than going into a darker, angry place.
