As if being the first male to scoop the Brits Critics' Choice Award earlier this year wasn't big enough, he's following in the footsteps of Emeli Sandé, Jessie J, Ellie Goulding and Florence + the Machine; all of whom went on to sell millions of records across the globe. With that in mind, does Lily Rose Cooper's latest signing step up to the plate with his debut single?

A soaring and rowdy intro immediately kick-starts his campaign with substantially more clout than his broody ballads of 2012. "Suddenly I'm standing on a treetop up so high/ And all the songs, and all the poets, suddenly they're right," he declares over clattering acoustics and pounding piano riffs, passionately drunk on the first drops of love. Fortunately, with the public's appetite for organic singer-songwriters fully renewed, Tom is making the right noise at just the right time.
