The story of Tommy Tikka & The Missing Hubcaps dates back to 2020 when Tom launched his solo career after leaving Sony/BMG's Carmen Gray and FBP-signed The Impersonators. He's released two successful albums, including chart-topping hits like "Doormat" and "With Eyes Closed". A perennial winner at film festivals around the world, his music videos have been featured in magazines like Huffington's Thrive Global, Authority Magazine, Melody Maker Magazine, Ballroom Blitz, The Hollywood Digest and VENTS Magazine, among many others. He is also a two-time ISSA Award winner as well as a Josie Music Awards and Hollywood Music in Media Awards nominee with countless semi-finalist and finalist positions in international songwriting competitions. With his consistently engaging music style, Tom is quickly making himself a household name in the music industry.

'It's not just any other sad song, rather a voice of uncertainty and devastation, ransacked through the captivating voice of Tom.'

From peaking at #6 on the MPE Play radio charts on June 3 and becoming a bona fide hit single on June 16 when it entered the UK TOP 100 Rock Singles Chart at #4, one might say the song was a hit before it formally came out! "Something New" tells an utterly sad tale about realizing when it’s time to leave the person you love behind. The song proves that love by itself is not enough. Even the deepest of loves cannot protect against the pain that comes with knowing it's time to move on. The song serves as a reminder that even when someone is still loved, sometimes it's best to make hard choices and look forward. In addition, compatibility is essential. It is often better to walk away and let go, rather than trying to force a relationship to work. Finding the courage to make the difficult decision can open up new possibilities and lead to greater personal growth.
