Today’s video is shows the proces of writing Stranger Danger. We get to hear Tom playing an acoustic version right after he wrote it. And then see how it progressed by the time the band were rehearsing it last summer.
In another peek at what’s in store on Heartbreak Takeaway, Tom really opens up about his songwriting. He explains that it can be difficult not to get attached to a song he is writing.
The other band members talk about how well they know Tom and what he has been through. It is serious in tone, and a really great insight that we haven’t ever had before. It really does seem like some of the footage they will be releasing will be very raw, and will really help fans get to know them.
This was the caption:
am I the bad guy, for thinking it’s cool to keep your bruises on the inside💘
Happy Entertainment said this about the video:
This was filmed in November 2019. Since then @tomabisgold has written the most powerful and personal album I’ve ever heard.
Chapter 13 have an amazing relationship with each other and it’s the love and support of Jake, Noah and Jacob that has given Tom the courage to say what he needs to say and write songs that will inspire a generation. The album is almost finished and I couldn’t me more proud of the four young men @chapter13 have become 🧡🖤🧡🖤
Somehow I completely missed the fact that Tom was on The Cube in December! Thanks to _.multi_.fxndom on instagram I found out.
If you haven’t seen it there is a video of the full episode below. Tom doesn’t say much but the camera cuts to him a few times. He is rocking the lockdown hair, it is the longest I’ve seen him have it since he was little.
Chapter 13 had a livestream counting down to when fans could sign up for heartbreaktakeaway.com
They played a preview of some of the content that will be posted once it is up and running. Turns out they have been recording professional videos of all of their performances since their first gig. They played that to two fans and their family, they show the video in the livestream.
You can also hear a bit of Heartbreak Takeaway playing in the background. I have been adding the lyrics to the site, but they are very incomplete. Lots of new facts, pictures, lyrics are being added to the site -but a post on the home page for each update would be spammy.
Having to wait until the weekend for Heartbreak Takeaway to launch is terrible. But we can use the time to speculate on what their content will be!
Last year the boys removed all of their old videos and songs form social media. It wasn’t fun for any of the fans, but they were ready for a rebrand. From what they have said it sounds like they will be posting their old videos and songs now that we will have a separate platform for them to share it on. That means we may see the old videos come back.
They have also mentioned they will be sharing music, demos and unreleased stuff. It makes sense that they don’t want to confuse new fans by posting old songs that won’t be on the album on their main accounts. So we may finally get to hear the full studio versions of all of the songs we have been listening to through live videos!
Speaking of live videos, they shared a clip (below) of them singing Jump live at the O2. Finally a version not recorded on a mobile phone and with great sound quality! So we may be getting some well produced live videos from gigs. I can’t wait! What else do you think they will be posting?
This is the longest version of any of Chapter 13’s new songs so far, over a minute and a half of LBS.
They teased this song a few months ago and promised a longer version would be released. If you aren’t familiar with the song, LBS stands for Loved By Someone. You will probably have figured that out anyway, after listening. The lyrics are in the lyrics section of the site – there is a link to it in the site menu.
This is as much as we can post at the moment, how do you think the song is shaping up so far?
