Hello sweet readers, here is the 3rd single from my forthcoming album – title track called “The Year I Spent In Space” out today!
This song means a lot to me. It came to me in the thick of it all, these last couple years of Pandemania, as I call it. I hope you can check it out and share it with those you think would get it.
The album is being finalized and a release date will be set soon. Stay tuned and as always…thanks for listening!

“The Year I Spent In Space” – title track of forthcoming album. A song that speaks to what we all went through during the pandemic. Tom has been in his living room alone for months and months on end. It had the appearance and feeling of being in space. Especially with the screens zapping on and off and the zoom technology, and seeing people he loved…and didn’t love… from far away stations. 

“The screens were on but I was alone…”
Alone in outer space – in my living room. Glad there was a piano with me!

But it is also a song with hope, Freund says “And when it’s over I will rejoice with a hug to everyone I said that I loved, and we’ll go dancing on the streets until the sun come up…”
 “Every year the mounting landfill of new releases that threatens to bury the working music journalists yields a few unexpected gems, and Tom Freund is one of them” – NEW YORK TIMES“Freund clearly delights in enigma. His vocals could go from laconic to impassioned without such obvious trickery as cranking up the volume. His lyrics are full of curve balls” – WASHINGTON POST 

*The track was recorded at 4th St Recording,Santa Monica, CA. Tom on vocals and plays piano and all the guitars. Co – produced by Sejo Navajas (Vintage Trouble, Weezer) and Tom. Wally Ingram – drums (Sheryl Crow, Timbuk 3), Chris Joyner – keyboards (Jason Mraz, Natalie Merchant) and Oliver Kraus – strings (Sia, Beth Orton)
