Sam Fender has shared brand-new single 'Get You Down', which premiered on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds as the Hottest Record. The new track is lifted from his forthcoming second album Seventeen Going Under outOctober 8 via Dew Process/UMA.
Following Sam's stunning return with chest-pumping first single and title track, 'Seventeen Going Under', 'Get You Down' launches like a rocket to the heart, as Sam looks inward on one of his more personal singles. It's a soaring,pulsating taster to one of the most anticipated records of the year.
Sam says of the track, "The whole record is about growing up and the self-esteem issues that you carry into your adult life, this song in particular is about how insecurity has affected my relationships. Definitely one ofthe more personal ones"
Whilst Seventeen Going Under is destined to be a more intense and personal record than Hypersonic Missiles, it's lost none of Sam's acute sense of observation. It's a brave record; a defiant record; a celebratory record; and an inspiring one too. Like only truly great songwriters can, Sam turns his own experience into art that speaks to and resonates with all of us. These are simple but stunning songs that fire like an arrow straight through, and straight from the heart.
Speaking about the album, Sam perfectly encapsulates the record as: "This album is a coming-of-age story. It's about growing up. It's a celebration of life after hardship, and it's a celebration of surviving."
