Love the current single, looking forward to this!

Pre-order is now available through his website. Loving his output at the moment, a deserved winner of Critics’ Choice.

Wtf he's so good, I didn't know what I expected but I'm here for him!! Think Spice is my fave so far but Play God is very good too.

Play God is Greg James’ Tune of the Week on Radio 1 this week so I’d imagine a playlist slot isn’t too far off.

EDIT: It’s already C List oop kink.gif

I don't even think it's finished yet, I doubt it.

Can't find any mention of it online, would be a strange album to leak.

I was listening to the iTunes thread when someone got Sam Fender mixed up with Tom Walker!

Posted by: Whoody4Paramore Mar 1 2019, 05:49 PM

Play God is now his first charting single in the UK at #95!

Posted by: Steve201 Mar 1 2019, 10:05 PM

Doing well on iTunes (top 40) and top 200 on streams!

Saw him last night in Brixton and going to his upcoming London shows in Bethnal Green & Shepherds Bush - I think this will be the last time I’ll ever get to see him perform in intimate venues as from the reaction last night and the music he’s produced so far he is going to absolutely smash with his album.

He said at the show last night the album is almost finished - some songs he referred to as ‘This will be song 2 on the album’ etc., - If it has leaked then its definitely not the finished/complete album.

Don't worry, nothing of Sam's leaked. Someone got him mixed up with Tom Walker wink.gif

I had no interest in him before but I absolutely love 'Play God', glad to see it at least going top 100 for him as he doesn't exactly scream singles artist.

Posted by: SLlewellyn Mar 4 2019, 10:19 PM

Just as "Play God" is picking up, Sam's announced that a new song is dropping tomorrow!

Posted by: WhoOdyssey Mar 4 2019, 10:43 PM

Ah nice! Looking forward to that biggrin.gif

Hopefully we get an album release date and title as well.

Posted by: Juan Carlos ⚡️ Mar 5 2019, 03:35 PM

"Hypersonic Missiles" is going to be premiered on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show tonight.


Posted by: WhoOdyssey Mar 5 2019, 03:59 PM

Fantastic! From the title I imagine it will be another politics-based song

Posted by: WhoOdyssey Mar 5 2019, 07:32 PM



Damn this is incredible! I can see this being my fave of his. Absolutely love the saxophone! wub.gif

Posted by: darrens94 Mar 6 2019, 01:15 PM

I love this new song it sounds a bit like The Killers.

Posted by: Liаm Mar 6 2019, 01:20 PM

Soooo melodic, I love it wub.gif This might overtake Play God as my fave so far!

Posted by: Bjork Mar 6 2019, 03:45 PM

very disappointing, this sounds like a Killers pastiche, too much of a copycat song, shows zero personality by sounding 1000% like Brandon Flowers

Posted by: WhoOdyssey Apr 3 2019, 06:14 PM



Hypersonic Missiles video releasing tomorrow! Love this song so much biggrin.gif

Posted by: Bjork Apr 4 2019, 02:19 PM

maybe it's cos you're a killers fan and you have killers withdrawal
cos the song is just wrong, a piss poor killers pastiche with the guy trying to impersonate Brandon flowers instead offing his thing and singing in his normal voice
major disappointment after the previous one was excellent

Posted by: WhoOdyssey Apr 4 2019, 03:12 PM



I love The Killers, this sounds nothing like them.

This is his voice lol, he sounds no different here to what he does in The Sound and it's a banger.

Posted by: WhoOdyssey Apr 15 2019, 07:05 PM

Announcement tomorrow! Seems like it will be for the album biggrin.gif

So hyped for this album - I’ve seen him live several times now and am going to his upcoming Shepherds Bush shows, he just keeps getting better and better and I’m sure he won’t be playing these intimate venues for much longer.

Have totally been a stan for the album pre-orders so far!! But I have all his white vinyl 7” etc., so keeping the collection going.

So far I’ve ordered - Coloured Vinyl, CD, Cassette, Minidisc, Amazon Exclusive CD, Independent Stores Clear Vinyl tongue.gif

Posted by: ___∆___ Apr 19 2019, 11:07 PM

Indie stores were allowed to sell any remaining Record Store Day stock online from midnight tonight and Banquet have some Sam Fender 7” if anyone was looking for a copy (Be quick though they had 154 copies available and every time I look the number is dropping), so pleased I finally managed to get one cheer.gif

Patrick Topping Remix is out this week


Posted by: WhoOdyssey Jun 26 2019, 05:08 PM

He's cancelled lots of festivals over the past few, and next few weeks due to illness, which is a shame. I was supposed to see him at IOW, but cancelled and was replaced by Yungblud (so I wasn't complaining tongue.gif )



On the plus side - hyped for new music next week!

Posted by: Steve201 Jun 26 2019, 10:23 PM

Was expecting new music in the next week with the album out in 6 weeks!
