Tom Chaplin / December 2017 English Christmas Tour

 
By on Monday, 16th October 2017 at 9:00 am
 

Last Thursday on Jo Whiley’s evening Radio 2 programme, Tom Chaplin premiered ‘Under a Million Lights’. As he explained, the song will appear on a new Christmas album he has in the works. ‘Twelve Tales of Christmas’ drops over a month ahead of the big day, so from the 17th of November on, you’ll be able to get this in plenty of time as a stocking stuffer for your Keane and Tom Chaplin-loving loved ones from Island Records. This yuletide-themed collection follows ‘The Wave’, Chaplin’s debut solo record that was released in October 2016, reviewed by me here. If you somehow missed it, I posted a two-part interview feature with the man back then, too. To promote the Christmas album, Chaplin has announced a trio of English gigs in December. Tickets are on sale this Friday, the 20th of October, at 10 AM. For more on what Tom Chaplin has been up to as a solo artist since the hiatus of Keane, check out our coverage of him here on TGTF through here.
