The track is the first cut to be taken from the singer-songwriter's album and the follow-up to 2018's Lighting Matches.

Tom Grennan has released his brand new This Is The Place single.

The song is the first taste of new material to come from Grennan since his 2018 debut album, Lighting Matches and will feature on his new record, which is set for release on 20 January 2020.

Grennan said of the track: "This song is about finding a place of complete calm and escaping utter chaos and carnage. My happy place, my go to place! Whether it’s on my own or with the person I love. The song documents the kind of journey I go on to get there, and one that I would make any time of the day to reach a serene and cleansing state of mind."
