Tom Chaplin has shared the official music video for new single ‘Gravitational’.

The track is the second to be revealed from his forthcoming new solo album ‘Midpoint’, due out on 02 September 2022.

The infectious indie-pop number was produced by Ethan Johns and sees him at his most upbeat. Tom commented, “There’s an ambiguity to the lyrics…The heavy chemicals now are the love for family. But it’s also the desire to unravel. With my addiction and then with certain midlife questions, every time I felt myself getting very far away from home, and my wife, and kids, and music even, there’s an energy that pulls me back. I love that.”


‘Gravitational’ follows the album’s title track, which was also accompanied by a music video, starring Niamh Cusack and directed by Lucy Bridger.


The Keane frontman began writing new songs two year’s ago when the band’s 2019 Cause and Effect tour was interrupted by the pandemic.

Produced by Ethan Johns, the emotionally charged collection will feature 13 brand-new reflective songs, which were recorded in six weeks at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in Bath and Paul Epworth’s The Church in North London.

Chaplin’s debut solo album ‘The Wave’ dropped back in 2016, followed by 2017s festive-themed ‘Twelve Tales of Christmas’.

Arriving as he enters mid-life, ‘Midpoint’ is like nothing else. The singer-songwriter commented, “There’s space for something nuanced that explores a part of life that everyone goes through…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.”

In addition, Tom has confirmed that he will hit the road on a solo headline UK tour this October – full details below:
