It's the latest from Hypersonic Missiles...
The track, which is Fender’s favorite from his debut record, is accompanied by a video from director Thomas James that tells the story of two friends going their own ways after an entire childhood together. You can check it out in full below.
The release comes after Fender’s debut album ‘Hypersonic Missiles’ shot to number one upon release at the beginning of September.
It’s only the fifth debut album to top the Official UK Albums Chart this year, following Tom Walker’s ‘What A Time To Be Alive’, Dave’s ‘Psychodrama’, Billie Eilish’s ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’, and Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’.
In a four-star review of ‘Hypersonic Missiles’, NME said: “Sam Fender’s debut album isn’t particularly voguish – it’s a bloke with a guitar singing about ‘issues’. Those words might make you recoil, but the Geordie Springsteen knows his way around a tune.”
Fender will embark on a sold-out headline tour of the UK and Ireland later this year, before returning for an arena tour in April 2020. He’s also been confirmed to support Kasabian at their Leicester homecoming show in June 2020, alongside Inhaler and Easy Life.
