‘Get You Down’ Is The Third Taste Of The Upcoming Album
‘Seventeen Going Under’ will release on 8th October 2021!
Sam Fender has today shared his third single to be released from the upcoming album, ‘Seventeen Going Under’. The new single, titled ‘Get You Down’ follows on from the release of title track ‘Seventeen Going Under’ as well as ‘Aye’, and the new single is much more alike the tracks from his first album, ‘Hypersonic Missiles’. It’s not a bad thing that he’s keeping the vibe from his debut album though, as it shows he’s sticking true to his roots and still delivering tracks which are down to earth, self reflecting and honest. It’s everything that Sam Fender has always been about and it’s great to see it continuing.
Speaking about the album, and in particular about the new single, Sam says; “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 of the more personal ones”
Set to be more honest than the debut, ‘Seventeen Going Under’ is going to showcase just how good Sam is at writing honest, and occasionally moving, lyrics. The new album is more personal and self reflecting, and that is the sign of a truly brilliant songwriter, as many of the greatest songwriters have turned past tragedies and woes into groundbreaking songs that have cemented their place in the history books. We have no doubt that Sam Fender is just as capable of cementing the new album in the history books, and this new single is a solid reassurance of that.
Already this year, Sam has delivered his music, old and new, to thousands of eager onlookers, with festivals such as Reading and Leeds, Boardmasters, and most recently, Neighbourhood Weekender. With three festival appearances still to come (including a homecoming appearance at Newcastle’s ‘This Is Tomorrow’ festival) and a UK tour, it’s set to be a busy few months for Sam Fender. The tour will see him play dates up and down the UK, including two nights in Manchester, as well as another homecoming show at Newcastle Arena!
