Thomas Headon today shares his brand new single, How Do I Know?, pulled from his upcoming EP ‘Victoria’, due 11th March 2022 and available to pre-order now. Fuelled with beachy chords, the track comes accompanied by a live video reminiscent of early 00s garage bands, and sees Thomas perform in his backyard on a sunny day with his band while he navigates the confusing feelings between young love and lust.
Of the release, Headon shares: ‘I wrote How Do I Know after going on a first date. It’s basically a song about questioning whether you’re in love with someone or whether it’s just an in-the-moment feeling lol. It was written in Australia when I was home for the summer. I think it’s super bright and fun for that reason and makes me glad I’m starting off the year by releasing this. It’s one of the first songs I made off this EP and definitely one of my favourites.’
How Do I Know? follows Thomas’ recent hits Nobody Has To Know (added to high rotation at triple j) and Strawberry Kisses (Radio 1-playlisted) – which was also dubbed Radio 1’s Hottest Record – as the third offering from his upcoming EP, he also recently collaborated with Chloe Moriondo and Alfie Templeton on the brilliant Dizzy, and featured on G Flip’s single Not Even In Vegas. Thomas also performed Nobody Has To Know live for ABC’s The Sound Season 3, watch HERE.
Hundreds of lucky fans already got a chance to preview the new EP at the UK’s Reading & Leeds festival, which marked Thomas‘ first UK festival, where he played to a packed out Dance Stage, and met Norwegian popstar Sigrid, who he will be joining on tour in Spring 2022 following a stint of headline tour dates around the UK in November 2021 – which included two sold-out nights at London’s Heaven.
Stay tuned for more news from Thomas Headon, coming soon.
Thomas Headon was born in London and raised in Melbourne, but dreamt of moving back to the city to pursue music. Thomas’ mum told him he had a year to get a “proper job” otherwise he would have to return home. Arriving in London just before the pandemic hit, Thomas started to build a community online – blowing up on TikTok with 420K followers and over 15M likes to date – with his off-kilter live sessions, tongue-in-cheek charm and remarkable songwriting ability. Learning to write and produce on his own in his late teens, Thomas has already released two self-written and self-produced EP’s, ‘The Greatest Hits’ and ‘The Goodbye EP’ in 2020, amassing 55M streams world wide. All before his 21st birthday.
Building an incredibly loyal fanbase by himself over lockdown and amassing 103K followers on Instagram, Thomas has been chosen as one of Amazon Music’s Artists to watch for 2022 and MTV Push’s Ones to Watch for 2022. His blend of playful alternative pop that speaks to the Gen-Z experience, has been compared to the likes of the 1975’s Matty Healy, and critically praised by triple j, naming him a ‘seriously impressive force in pop music’. Already performing a charmingly energetic live session on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show, following the ‘Living Room Shows’ tour, where he played an intimate acoustic series to thousands of fans across the UK. One of the first artists to curate Spotify’s Our Generation playlist, the 21-year-old has also collaborated with American singer-songwriter Lizzy McAlpine on his single Bored, and gained over 55M global streams.
