Sam Fender – ‘Seventeen Going Under’

After becoming an international sensation with the release of his critically acclaimed debut record ‘Hypersonic Missiles’, North Shields singer-songwriter Sam Fender is back with a new single and news of his highly anticipated sophomore album.

Titled ‘Seventeen Going Under’, the new single picks up from where he last left off, offering up an anthemic Springsteen-inspired track that is all about coming-of-age. Speaking openly about the new single and the complete album, Fender explained, “It’s a relatable journey that careers through an often-misspent youth, navigating tumultuous relationships with both friends and family, and trying to figure out what comes next and how to get there.”

A press release continued the story, “North Shields is the ever-present backdrop for these deeply personal vignettes of a young life travelling breathlessly from nought to sixty, hauling on the brakes and zipping back again from where he started. Over the course of the record, these stunning songs chronicle all the cherished memories, tricky encounters, and events that Sam cannot unsee.”

Produced alongside Bramwell Bronte, Fender’s upcoming LP will see him “turning the mirror on himself; his adolescence and the trials and tribulations of growing up,” delivering a dedicated coming of age story that will act as “a celebration of life after hardship, and […] a celebration of surviving”.

In a letter to his "17-year-old self," Fender explained, "17 is when all the challenges begin: you're not a baby, but you're definitely not an adult (turns out that bit takes a lot longer than you think)."

Set to be released on the 8th of October this year, the album was recorded in North Shields and will be available on all formats, including four unique vinyl designs, each with their own colour and artwork.
