Tom Walker Partners With CALM For Powerful New Single ‘Lifeline’

Taken From Tom’s New Album I Am – Out Later This Year

April/May UK Headline Tour
Includes London’s Eventim Apollo – May 7th, 2024

Following his recent ambassadorial announcement, Tom Walker today partners with Suicide prevention charity, Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) for the release of his brand new, towering ballad Lifeline – a searingly emotional tribute to a friend he sadly lost.

Data shows that one in five people will have suicidal thoughts in their lifetime, with someone dying by suicide every 90 minutes on average in the UK, and ‘Lifeline’ explores the feelings and thoughts that race through your head when it affects the people closest to you – and questions what can be done to help. Watch the powerful video, produced in partnership with CALM HERE.

Tom says of the track; “Me and my friends lost one of our own suddenly and unexpectedly. It’s difficult to process grief.I felt we were all asking ourselves ‘what could I have done? What could I have said? What could have been done differently?’. Sometimes people make choices that are beyond your control and it’s hard to help someone who isn’t reaching out. My hope is that maybe by writing a song like this that addresses the stigma behind mental health, it might persuade people to think twice and ask for a helping hand when they’re really struggling. CALM is an amazing charity who help people when things get too much. I’m keen to spread the word about their amazing work in any way that I can.”

After becoming 2019’s biggest UK-signed selling artist, with a number 1 debut album, an international hit single in ‘Leave A Light On’, three million worldwide album sales and over four billion global streams in tow, Tom Walker is on his hard-fought return with brand new studio record, I Am – out later this year.

The back end of last year saw impeccable releases in ‘Burn’ & ‘Freaking Out’ – both of which Tom performed with aplomb on Later…With Jools Holland. Watch HERE & HERE. Most recently came ‘Head Underwater’ – a soulful pop anthem with a soaring vocal that welcomed in  a whole new Tom Walker.


Where previously, Tom became known for powerful accounts of other people’s stories, including a friend’s battle with drugs (‘Leave A Light On’), and articulating his own relatable feelings for his now wife (‘Just You & I’); on his new album he now finds himself writing about his own personal struggles and anxieties, creative challenges, sadness and moments of despair. It is a sometimes visceral account of who Tom Walker is in 2024, hence the title: I Am.

After writing, and binning, a plethora of new tracks, an exhausted Tom subsequently headed out to Los Angeles to write with the McDonough brothers, Toby Gadd, Ryan Daly & Castle, who’s credits between them include Beyonce, Joji, Khalid, Mimi Webb and John Legend. The trip reignited the excitement and love of trying brand new things.

The results speak for themselves. Welcome to the exciting, limitless next phase of Tom Walker. A man who knows where he’s headed: to arena-scale songs with molecular-level heart.
