Rising Star Thomas Headon Shares Brand New Single “2009 TOYOTA” OUT NOW

Having claimed the highest charting EP of 2022 with his debut EP on Warner Records VictoriaThomas Headon has proven himself an undeniable indie-pop force to be reckoned with.

Playing his first-ever UK show at 150-cap venue The Grace in 2020, to selling out 2300-cap O2 Forum Kentish Town last year, completing a co-headline tour with good friend Alfie Templeman and supporting both Sir Elton John and Sigrid, the London via Melbourne rising star today premiere’s his brand new single  ‘2009 TOYOTA’, which premiered on Triple J, marking a full circle moment for the pop-sensation who was previously featured on Triple J’s ‘Unearthed’.

The track drops after Thomas has spent the past week driving around in an old vintage car playing the song to the streets of London. It follows the release of ‘i loved a boy’ and the BBC Radio playlisted and UK airplay hit – peaking at #17 in the top 20 – ‘Georgia’, and comes before Thomas sets off for a summer of festivals including Ocean Fest, Barn on the Farm, Standon Calling and Y Not Festival, with many more still to be announced.  

“I wrote 2009 Toyota in Australia with my friend Taka and not gonna lie we went into it with no aim other than we wanted to write a song that was just pure vibes. We started playing around with different sounds and random lyrics that don’t mean a lot but when we put them all together it sounded really cool, and I’m really proud of the outcome. I’ve never actually driven a 2009 Toyota, I was 8 in 2009! But, my friend Charlie really does live in an apartment with a rooftop, so there is some truth in it.” – Thomas Headon
