TBT! This was the first bit of telly we had ever done as Tom Williams & The Boat, on BT Sport of all places. We were there all day in the Olympic Park in these HUGE new studios. The show was called, 'Life's A Pitch' and was a football chat show with two songs played live by us.

"Now I bid you farewell, I don't know when I'll be back
There moving us tomorrow to that tower down the track
But you'll be hearing from me baby, long after I'm gone
I'll be speaking to you sweetly
From a window in the Tower of Song "

Still often asked about this track, a really special song. Written using lyrics from Luke (aged 9 at the time) through Nick Hornby's Ministry of Stories, it's an amazing album of songs using young writers' lyrics by great songwriters including Ben Folds Matthew And The Atlas Benjamin Francis Leftwich & Rachel Sermanni. Check it out if you haven't already and grab a copy x

Last night was hands down the best gig I've ever been to, Springsteen had Wembley in the palm of his hand for 3 and a half hours... This is an obvious highlight in a whole evening of highlights... I'm on 4 hours sleep and am now speeding back to the capital to one of my favourite places in the world to finish something very important to me... Eyes peeled please!xx
