Tom Odell - Tom Odell worried about breaking finger

Tom Odell almost broke a finger making his latest video.

The singer was filming the video of his latest single 'Hold Me' when the accident occurred, which he worried could affect his piano playing.

Speaking to Absolute Radio presenter Pete Donaldson: ''That video was a bit mad. It was this really long shoot and the next day I woke up and I was just covered in bruises. I thought I'd broken my finger.''

Explaining how he'd managed to sustain the injury while interacting with the live crowd assembled for the video, he added: ''I was doing this bit where I run through the crowd and they all start sort of moshing and one of them was just getting really excited and he grabbed my finger and twisted it - I don't know why. I was terrified that I'd broken it''.

Tom also played an exclusive set at the iconic Abbey Road studios in London for the radio station, and said he was overwhelmed to be in the same location many of his musical recorded.

He added: ''I did some strings here for my album which I didn't use, but we did it in room 2 and that's where The Beatles recorded every single Beatles album. For me, when I first came to Abbey Road and I went to room 2, I think it was the best day of my life.''

'Hold Me' from Tom's debut album, 'Long Way Down', is out on April 15.
