English singer-songwriter Sam Fender is back with his new song “Alright.” Listen in below.
Taken from the sessions for his sophomore album, the track is a rousing, pensive heartland rocker accentuated by a saxophone that comes in halfway through the track. “‘Alright’ is one of the first tracks from the Seventeen Going Under era,” Fender shared in a statement. “It was always a favourite of mine, and somehow didn’t make the record. It’s about growing up and the theme of cheating death.”
Back in March, Kyle Meredith caught up with Fender to discuss how therapy influenced the artist’s songwriting process. Revisit that interview here.
Later this month, he’ll head out on a run of headlining US tour dates and festival performances before opening for Florence + the Machine. See Fender’s full tour itinerary below, and grab tickets via Ticketmaster.
