Amy Winehouse, Kendrick Lamar and Curtis Mayfield have all been name-checked by Tom Grennan as inspirations for his new single Oh Please.

“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,” he reveals. “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. 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.”
