Keane’s Tom Chaplin is getting set to release his new album ‘Midpoint’, due the 2nd of September via BMG and produced by Ethan Johns.
Coming as Tom enters mid-life, Midpoint is like nothing else.
“There’s space for something nuanced that explores a part of life that everyone goes through,” Tom says. “If I can get some of that across and it can resonate with something people are feeling in in their lives-well, I’d be more than happy with that.”
On the title track, Tom’s voice soars, painting a picture of a man who is both bemused and confused with thoughts of his midlife. These feelings are beautifully captured in an evocative film starring Niamh Cusack, directed by Lucy Bridger.
A beautiful track to stop time and to just sit and listen. A track that will resonate with everyone no matter their age. It’s proof that music still holds a kind of magic that not a lot of over media can match. There’s just something about Chaplin’s voice and a simple acoustic backing. Backing that builds halfway through the track when drums are added and the track morphs into a folk rock ballad.
