Posted: Updated:

Taylor Swift may already have herself a new British beau.

Tongues wagged when Swift stepped out with British singer Tom Odell in London on Thursday night, according to E! News. The two sparked romance rumors just weeks after Swift's split from One Direction singer Harry Styles.

After enjoying some drinks at the Florists Arms pub in Bethnal Green, East London, Swift and Odell headed to the members-only Groucho Club in Soho, according to the Mirror.

Odell is a 22-year-old singer-songwriter known for penning songs inspired by heartbreak, notes the Mirror. One of his most popular hits is "Another Love," about someone he fell for while in school. (Sound familiar?) On Wednesday, he scooped up the Critics' Choice Award at the 2013 BRIT Awards, where Swift gave a sexy performance of "I Knew You Were Trouble" while Styles watched from the crowd.

Last month the two first connected when Swift got flirty with Odell on Twitter. The 23-year-old songstress sent a tweet gushing about his talent and he replied with "xx" (kisses).

The British singer was asked about the flirtatious tweets with Swift during an interview with Spinner this week.

"Maybe she is," he responded, when asked if he thought she was flirting. "Quite nice. She's a pretty girl." Adding, "Perhaps. I don't know. I've never met her before, so it's strange, flirting with her. But if she is, then cool. I should have flirted more back, maybe."

He and the "Red" singer's first apparent introduction happened backstage at the BRIT Awards.

Odell, who covered Swift's "Trouble" during a recent BBC appearance, is also a fan of her work. "Taylor Swift is a really intriguing character in music in that she's one of the biggest pop stars in the world and yet I think her songs are brilliant, I really do," he told Spinner. "I think she writes really dark lyrics ... I think she's a lot more real than people think she is."
