Watch Tom Grennan talk about the single to Radio X's George Godfrey:
Speaking of the track’s inspiration, the 24-year-old artist said: “When writing ‘Oh Please’ I was listening to a lot of Curtis Mayfield, Nas, Kendrick, and of course Amy Winehouse, and I wanted to channel this through the song. The opening transports me back to visiting America, crossing the Brooklyn bridge for the first time and seeing Manhattan. It really hit me at that moment that anything was possible, and I saw things clearer than ever before. I felt euphoric and excited for the future, a chapter closed and a beautiful new beginning ahead. It changed my mindset towards relationships, to focus my energy on learning from them rather than going into a darker, angry place. ‘Oh Please’ is about learning from relationships. It’s about staying strong and making the right decisions with respect and grace.”
The singer-songwriter has been recovering from a bout of suspected coronavirus symptoms, and shared a video just after getting over the worst of his illness in which he urged fans to stay at home.
Speaking from his bed, he revealed: Truthfully, I've been in bed, laid up. My joints feel like they’ve aged about 50 years. I’ve slept so much.
"I've had a disgustingly bad headache, and today's the only day really I've felt human again."
The Sober singer added: "So really I'm just pleading and telling you and just saying please stay indoors.
"Like, I thought I was a healthy 24-year-old boy, but anyone can get this and it is f***ing serious. I'm just happy to say I'm getting better and it's OK."
Meanwhile, Grennan has been doing some amazing things during the pandemic, such as helping deliver food and supplied to the elderly in his community.
Tom also took park in Radio X's Phone Covers, where he performed a stunning rendition of Paolo Nutini's Last Request.
