Solid Gold duet version out today!

17 March 2017

Hello! Today sees the release of a brand new duet version of Solid Gold from Tom’s acclaimed solo album, The Wave. The reworking was recorded with UK singer, JONES. Click here to stream / download now.

Here’s what Tom has to say about the new version. “Solid Gold is a love letter to my wife. I wanted to articulate how my view of our relationship had changed once I got myself clean. The song explores the idea of my marriage transforming from sorcery and alchemy into something tangible and precious.

When I wrote the middle section of the song, I always had it in mind that it should feel like a duet. Matt Hales (my producer) is good friends with Sara Watkins, a fantastic country artist from the US, and we thought she would be great for that moment on the album version.

After discovering Jones through a mutual songwriting friend (Max McElligot), I had the idea of making the song into a full duet. Having never done this kind of thing before, I was slightly dubious as to how it would work; however, Jones and I got in a studio and figured out a reworking of the song that has given it a whole new layer.”
